More effective microbial management in food production can be accomplished by considering social, ecological, and evolutionary relationships among microorganisms, people, and the environment. Dispersal of pathogenic Escherichia coli O157:H7 can be limited, for example by moving from an industrial food production model to processing smaller batches of produce, showing how a social ecological approach can reduce the risk of large-scale outbreaks of foodborne illness.
