The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) was established in 1996 as a collaboration among the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and state and local health departments. NARMS tracks antimicrobial resistance in foodborne and other enteric bacteria, including Salmonella and Campylobacter, from humans, retail meats, and food-producing animals.
