NRK Forbrukerinspektørene has, in cooperation with the Norwegian Consumer council had analyzed ten random packages with butikkjøpt chicken from nine Norwegian and one Swedish manufacturer.

In all seven of the products were found resistant E. coli bacteria. These can in the worst case, give us humans a disease that is not treatable with antibiotics. There is only sufficient heat treatment which can remove any bacteria in the chicken that you have purchased.

the Analysis, which was conducted by the national veterinary institute, tested for both ESBL – and kinolonresistente bacteria (see information below).

The survey is a random, and a new test of the same marks could be given completely different results. The test still provides an indication of the challenges to fjørfebransjen.

In a large review of the ESBL-bacteria two years ago found Veterinærinstitutet the resistant bacteria present in 32 percent of the seals studied.

In the Radio test, it was only found ESBL in one of the packages with kyllingfileter, while the other six packages beating the positive out of kinolonresistente bacteria (see the test further down in the article).

Three of the positive samples came from Norway’s largest kyllingprodusent Prior. One of the Prior products contained the dreaded ESBL-bacteria.

“I think as you that it sounds a lot, and this is not something we like,” says manager Ellen Flø Skagen in the Priors parents Nortura.

– We don’t know quite how you have done this survey, and how representative it is. But we will continue to work with our procedures; in imports, with the farmer and with us in industry and at home with consumers, she says to NRK Forbrukerinspektørene.

But can we have it so that they risk to buy chicken that can be resistant to antibiotics?

In Norway we are very well used. We have a high standard on food safety, and we will continue to have. But we can’t give any guarantees that we can’t experience this, ” says Ellen Flø Skagen.

Also the ecological manufacturer Holte Farm was reflected in the Veterinærinstituttets test.

These bacteria can reside in the imported eggs. Therefore, we can not guarantee that the chicken is without these bacteria, unfortunately, ” says Magnus Olsen, general manager, Holte Farm. the

We are very conscious of the presence of resistant bacteria. A total fjørfenæring work actively with measures to reduce the incidence of such bacteria. The industry has taken extensive sampling in order to survey the prevalence in all joints as well as the impact of measures, says kvalitetsdirektør Merete Forseth at Rema 1000-manufacturer Norwegian Chicken.

She refers to the plan of action for drug resistance, which has recently been revised, and that includes both the ESBL-bacteria and kinolonresistens.

– We take this very seriously, and has a goal to be free of resistance in the course of the coming years, ” says Forseth in a comment to

Matvaregiganten Coop supplier The Proud Rooster struck out on Forbrukerinspektørenes test, but they do not want to comment on found.

– It is the industry, i.e. the industry and the industry, which must take a primary responsibility for the situation we are in now, says Gunstein Instefjord, responsible for food and trade in the Consumer.

He also calls for more stringent measures to get rid of the dangerous bacteria in chicken.

It is indeed a difficult and demanding work. But in Norway we have succeeded when it comes to pork. We are still one of the few countries that do not have resistant bacteria in pork. It tells me that the tough measures will help, he says to NRK.

– What must happen?

– the Industry must go through the entire chain. Everything from how close the animals can stand, to slaktemetode and requirements for hygiene. There are measures here that are possible to implement, and they are going to cost. But the cost needs to be taken, believe Instefjord.

He also encourage Norwegian politicians to take a responsibility.

Monitoring shows, among other things, that kilononresistente bacteria occurs despite the fact that Swedish chickens do not get the type of antibiotics that lead to such resistance, she says to

She explains that the Swedish kyllingbønder for a long time has been to produce healthy animals which do not need antibiotics.
