MDR Salmonella Newport in returned travelers form Mexico

Some travelers who have spent time in Mexico have been infected with multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella Newport. MDR Salmonella has developed the ability to defeat drugs designed to kill them. Infections with MDR Salmonella can be difficult to treat. Clinicians should follow CDC’s treatment guidance. Many travelers with MDR Salmonella Newport infections reported eating beef, cheese (including queso fresco and Oaxaca), beef jerky, or dried beef (carne seca) before they got sick.
