        "...Unwritten agreements between some companies appear to stand in the way of ingredient testing. Many big slaughterhouses will sell only to grinders who agree not to test their shipments for E. coli, according to officials at two large grinding companies. Slaughterhouses fear that one grinder’s discovery of E. coli will set off a recall of ingredients they sold to others..."

            the study is concerning outbreaks of illnesses due to food contamination.  a more exhaustive study, i'm sure, would encompass other reasons which many are behavior oriented.  another link to the same study:
            http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Dangerous-foods-list-includes-cnnm-1143667599.html?x=0

            what i really wish they had addressed was how lettuce and spinach get contaminated,  which we know is due to the run off from livestock adjacent or nearby to crop lands.

            overall, the study in question is fairly questionable.  ie: ice cream [i'm not defending it in anyway] gets a bad wrap mostly from one isolated incident from 15 years, though it was pretty wide spread when it happened, but hardly a pattern or a reason to be concerned about ice cream [yes, there are many other reasons to be concerned about ice cream]
