Research Publications (Food Safety)

This page tracks research articles published in national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. Research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies (requires login) and FDA Grant Funding Agencies (requires login) are also tracked in Scopus.

  1. Characterization of Emerging Pathogens Carrying blaKPC-2 Gene in IncP-6 Plasmids Isolated From Urban Sewage in Argentina

    • Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology
    • Untreated wastewater is a reservoir for multidrug-resistant bacteria, but its role in the spread of antibiotic resistance in the human population remains poorly investigated. In this study, we isolated a KPC-2-producing ST2787 Klebsiella quasipneumoniae subsp. quasipneumoniae (WW14A), recovered from raw sewage at a wastewater treatment plant in Argentina in 2018 and determined its complete genome sequence. Strain WW14A was resistant to all β-lactams, ciprofloxacin and amikacin.
