This subject is reviewed under the following headings: Microbial contamination of raw meat and raw milk; Antibiotic resistance of food-borne pathogens; Antibiotic resistance of commensal and potentially pathogenic bacteria as a new threat in food microbiology; Antibiotic-resistant staphylococci in fermented meat and [in] milk products; Antibiotic-resistant Enterococcus sp. in fermented meat and [in] milk products; Enterococci in farm animals and meat; Enterococci in fermented food; Molecular characterization of resistance of food-borne enterococci; and Further ecological and epidemiological considerations of resistant live bacteria in food. It is concluded that further research is needed, particularly into the possible transfer of the resistance of bacteria consumed in meat or milk products to the indigenous bacteria of the human consumer.
