We studied the presence of the mobile colistin resistance gene mcr-1 in human, animal and environmental Enterobacteriaceae from Cumana (Venezuela) collected in 2015. mcr-1 was detected in 2/93 Escherichia coli from swine and human isolates resistant to colistin. Whole-genome sequencing and transformation experiments identified mcr-1 on an IncI2 plasmid. One of the isolates also bore the widely spread carbapenemase NDM-1. A One Health approach is necessary to further elucidate the flux of these high-risk genes
