Researchers have found epidemiologic and genomic evidence that the meat-production chain is a possible major source of Staphylococcus saprophyticus causing human urinary tract infections.

The study titled, “Foodborne Origin and Local and Global Spread of S. saprophyticus Causing Human Urinary Tract Infections,” provides insight into the origin, transmission, and population

Researchers reported yesterday that a specific strain of E. coli found in 80 percent of the retail poultry and pork they tested matches the strain found in patients with urinary tract infections. Routine testing at poultry farms, however, does not screen for that strain.

The year-long longitudinal study involved testing
