Screening of Greek nontyphoid salmonellae from 2000 to 2002 yielded three extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing human isolates. Salmonella enterica serotype Brandenburg harbored a multiresistant SHV-5 gene-carrying plasmid. S. enterica serotype Blockley and S. enterica serotype Hadar harbored a TEM-52 gene-carrying plasmid. An S. enterica serotype Virchow strain producing plasmid-mediated CTX-M-32 was isolated twice from poultry end products. All ESBL plasmids were self-transferable and carried by clones currently common in Greece.
