Many Triclosan based antibacterial products end up in our waterways. In local water samples we discovered antibiotic resistant bacteria. We then created resistant and cross-resistant bacteria through induction with titer plates, and transformation. The Kirby-Bauer method verified these results. Bacteria from human samples contained significant cross-resistance between antibiotics and Triclosan. This shows the potential for Triclosan induced antibiotic resistance to affect the North American population.
