Abstract

Our study examines the effects of a California policy change on rates of contamination by antimicrobial-resistant Escherichia coli of food-animal products. We predict that restricted use of non-therapeutic antimicrobials on food-animals will decrease rates of resistant bacteria on contaminated products.
