Antimicrobial resistance due to the use of biocides and heavy metals: a literature review

Antimicrobial resistance due to the use of biocides and heavy metals: a literature review

The most commonly used chemical compounds with the potential to induce antimicrobial resistance and cross or co-resistance in bacteria are the heavy metals, copper, zinc, and cadmium. This is the conclusion in a literature review from the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM).

Assessment of risks to animal health and biodiversity from import and farming of Australian red claw crayfish

Assessment of risks to animal health and biodiversity from import and farming of Australian red claw crayfish

It seems unlikely that the Australian red claw clayfish will establish reproductive populations under Norwegian climate conditions, but hitchhiker organisms and infectious agents could potentially follow the import, and unless managed, may pose risks to biodiversity and aquatic animal health. This is the conclusion in a risk assessment from the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM).
