A Corrigendum on
Colistin Resistance Mediated by mcr-1 in ESBL-Producing, Multidrug Resistant Salmonella Infantis in Broiler Chicken Industry, Italy (2016–2017)

by Carfora, V., Alba, P., Leekitcharoenphon, P., Ballarò, D., Cordaro, G., Di Matteo, P., et al. (2018) Front. Microbiol. 9:1880. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.01880

In the original article, there was an error in the Materials and Methods, subsection Isolates. The four S. Infantis isolates originated from broilers (n = 2) and broiler meat samples (n = 2).

A correction has been made to Materials and Methods, subsection Isolates: Four multidrug resistant (MDR) S. Infantis, displaying a colistin MIC value ≥ 4 mg/L, were detected among 324 S. Infantis isolates collected in the frame of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) monitoring activities conducted from 2001 to 2017 by the National Reference Laboratory for Antimicrobial Resistance (NRL-AR) and screened for antimicrobial susceptibility. The four S. Infantis isolates originated from broilers (n = 3) and from broiler meat sample (n = 1) (Supplementary Table 1).

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusionsof the article in any way.

The original article has been updated.
