During the summer of 2011 news of a new strain of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) found in milk in the UK made considerable headlines. 


Although I wrote about it in UK: `New MRSA’ Strain Spreading, the real expert in all things antibiotic resistant in the blogosphere is Maryn Mckenna on her Superbug Blog, who provided in-depth coverage in More MRSA, in milk: A new strain in cows and humans.


Today Maryn is back with another report, this time on the detection of the ST398 strain of MRSA, recently detected in Milk produced in England.
