about every second chicken sample from German super markets to find antibiotic-resistant pathogens. The organization Germanwatch had a total of 59 samples check.
The environmental organization Germanwatch has found in chicken meat from cheap supermarkets in approximately every second sample antibiotic-resistant germs. The 59 samples were taken in markets in twelve urban regions in Germany.
The meat had been analyzed samples in the laboratory of the University of Greifswald, Germany, said Reinhild Benning, agricultural expert at the German watch. 56 percent of the chicken flesh was populated with germs, which are resistant to certain antibiotics. "These findings we consider to be alarming," added Benning.well-Known supermarket chains
The samples were taken from the chicken meat to the chains, Lidl, Netto, Real, Aldi and Penny. Of the five markets in each of twelve portions were purchased chicken meat from conventional farming. The samples consisted of meat, from the conventional attitude, which came from the four highest turnover slaughterhouse companies in Germany. None of the slaughterhouses have consistently offered the amount of chicken meat, said Germanwatch.antibiotics are ineffective
In the preparation of the meat could resist get duck germs due to a lack of kitchen hygiene in the human body, warns German watch. In the case of subsequent infections prescribed antibiotics are not affected then sometimes.
According to Germanwatch, especially the requirements to be lax in the use of reserve antibiotics. The organization called for a ban on these specific antibiotics in animal husbandry.Hofschlachtereien cut better
German watch was also eleven test purchases at Hofschlachtereien from all over Germany to investigate. Here, the lab found only one chicken meat sample, a multi-resistant germ. In the case of six test chicken meat from craft purchases of Eco-slaughter, however, were found to have no resistant pathogens. According to Germanwatch, state examinations regularly come to similar results.
The consumption of Antibiotics by the German poultry farmers, according to environmental organisation Germanwatch twice as high as in Denmark, the UK or Austria.Twice as high as in other countries,
Although the German poultry breeders their antibiotic consumption since 2011 and a half, he is, according to the environmental organization is still twice as high as in Denmark, the UK or Austria. Germanwatch calls for the consumption of veterinary antibiotics is recorded.
the World health organization to die according to the information in the world about 700,000 people a year from infections against which no antibiotic will help. In Germany, according to the Robert Koch Institute, up to 4000 people in the year.
the Federal Institute for risk assessment, discovered last November in a study that in some fattening poultry chains are continue to high resistance rates. The meat could be as a source of resistant bacteria in humans is of considerable importance. The use of antibiotics in animal husbandry in the last years in Germany, but generally in decline.
