e-coli terrorism

I have no way to measure the likelihood or actuarial risk of this particular experience.  So I speak with a great amount of reluctance.   The outbreak of e-coli in Germany from a strain which is an unexpected biological mutant recombitant from two known strains is the kind of 'marker' I would expect from a terrorist foray looking for weak spots in our defenses.   And there's strong evidence that the food systems of the world are weak spots. No one is running our produce through a detection system to check its safety.

Probably not the case that this outbreak was a terrorist act.   But more importantly,  what is the likelihood that there will be such an act?  Highly probable I'd say.
