I'd be interested in that! The last big e. coli breakouts I've been aware of have all been because of breakdowns in big processing facilities, but there is likely a huge bias with reporting.

The CDC's page of e. coli outbreaks has a bunch that all look like failures at large commercial processors.

I wonder if we can get a correlation between the 32 states that allow home-made food sales and the local e. coli outbreaks.
