Klebsiella pneumoniae carrying blaCTX-M-15 have been widely disseminated in hospital settings. In this regard, most clinically important strains belong to clonal complex 28 (CC258), which includes sequence type 340 (ST340). In this study, we present the draft genome sequence of a CTX-M-15-producing ST340 K. pneumoniae strain isolated from a food-producing animal in Brazil.
