To find out the infection rate, and the rate of resistance to common antibiotics of E. coli strains in some types of raw meat, contributing to the prevention of food poisoning and foodborne diseases, we conducted the study: “Survey on infection status and antibiotic resistance rate of E. coli in pork and chicken meat at some traditional markets in Buon Ma Thuot city in 2021”. The study aimed to determine the infection rate of E. coli strains in pork and chicken meat at markets in Buon Ma Thuot city in 2021, and determine antibiotic resistance rates of isolated strains of E. coli. The rate of E.coli infection on fresh meat was 90.59%, of which 42.35% of samples exceeded the maximum level. The rate of E.coli infection on fresh pork and chicken meat at traditional markets was 95.00% and 86.70%, respectively. The overall rate of antibiotic resistance was 96.75%; Amoxicillin was resistant with the highest rate (93.51%) and the lowest rate was ceftazidime (19.48%). General antibiotic resistance by sample type was 91.56%, from pork was 87.18%, from chicken was 96.05%.
