The goal of this study was to test air samples collected within a swine CAFO for the presence of antibiotic-resistant enterococci, gram-positive, catalase-negative cocci that are not only members of the normal intestinal flora of humans and animals but also capable of causing a variety of human and animal infections [National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance (NNIS) 2001].
Enterococci are present in the healthy gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals.
Greater than 83% of enterococcal isolates showed resistance to streptomycin and sulfathiazole; no enterococci were resistant to chloramphenicol.
