The aim of this study was to determine lactic acid bacteria from Croatian traditional sausages and raw cow’s cheese and to investigate their susceptibility-resistance to 23 antimicrobials. All isolates of Lactobacillus spp. and Leuconostoc spp. n = 12 were susceptible to tetracycline, penicillin, bacitracin, chloramphenicol, cefalexin, linkomycin, erythromycin, ampicillin, spiramycin and amoxicillin, but resistant to vancomycin, nalidixic acid and metronidazole. Lactobacillus curvatus and Lactobacillus brevis 2 were resistant to nitrofurantoin and trimethoprim, Lactobacillus curvatus and Lactobacillus fermentum to oxacillin, while Lactobacillus brevis 1, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus paracesei ssp. paracasei 1 and 2 to neomycin. Leuconostoc spp. showed resistance to streptomycin, enrofl oxacine, nitrofurantoin, sulphonamides, polymyxin B and oxacillin. These preliminary results indicate the need for further investigations of LAB populations to obtain relevant data in risk assessment related to traditional food products.
