Stools of 38 travelers returning from India were screened for extended-spectrum cephalosporin- and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae implementing standard selective plates. Twenty-six (76.3%) people resulted colonized with CTX-M or DHA producers, but none of the strains was colistin-resistant and/or mcr-1-positive. Nevertheless, using an overnight enrichment and CHROMagarTM Orientation plates supplemented with colistin, four people (10.5%) were found colonized with colistin-resistant Escherichia coli. One cephalosporin-susceptible ST10 strain carried a 4211-bp ISApl1-mcr-1-ISApl1 element in an IncHI2 plasmid backbone.
