A total of 108 meropenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae isolates were obtained from 1658 rectal swabs collected from 15 unrelated commercial chicken farms in China between 2014 and 2016. These samples yielded sixteen Escherichia coli and two Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates of diverse sequence types carrying a blaNDM-5-bearing IncX3 plasmid. Klebsiella pneumoniae strain sequence type 709 (ST709) has two blaNDM-5-carrying plasmids that were transferred together to E.coli.
