Updated on

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria in UK pork products are putting human and animal health at risk, according to a new report from World Animal Protection, a nonprofit.

Tests carried out by the group and Fera Science examined 103 meat samples from UK supermarkets and online outlets and found the bacteria enterococci in 25 products, according to a report Tuesday. Of those, 23 were found to have bugs resistant to antibiotics.
