Abstract

To the Editor—We thank Bonten and Mevius for their interest in our systematic review [1]. In their letter, they disagree with our finding that whole-bacterium transmission (WBT) of expanded-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant (ESCR) Escherichia coli between food-producing animals and humans likely contributes to the burden of human extraintestinal infections. We respectfully argue against 2 assumptions that underlie their assertion.
