Resumo: (is study aims to evaluate )ies as a vector for foodborne pathogens. For this purpose, several )ieswere collected fromdi*erent sites from rural areas.(ese )ies were then analyzed for the presence of Enterobacteriaceae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus coagulase positive, and Listeria monocytogenes. Another aim of this study was to evaluate some virulence factors of the collected pathogens: susceptibility to some antibiotics and the presence of enterotoxigenic S. aureus. (e results showed that )ies in the presence of animals demonstrated a signi+cantly higher prevalence of the studied pathogens than those collected in the kitchens, and kitchens situated in the closest proximity to the animal husbandry had a higher count than the kitchens in private houses. Enterobacteriaceae was the indicator organism with the highest microbial counts followed by E. coli and S. aureus. Listeria monocytogenes was not detected from any of the collected )ies.(e antimicrobial susceptibility test showed that the bacteria carried by the )ies possessed multiantibiotic resistance pro+les, and enterotoxin A was produced by #%.,% of the con+rmed S. aureus isolates. (ese results demonstrate that )ies can transmit foodborne pathogens and their associated toxin and resistance and the areas of higher risk are those in closer proximity to animal production sites.
