Microbial risk assessment is the quantita-tive (or qualitative) characterization of the potential health effects of a particular mi-croorganism on individuals or populations. Practical public health policy/decisions to-day requires rethinking traditional ap-proaches in how microbial risk assessments are conducted As defined here, alternative approaches include those based on possi-bility theory, agent-based explicit spatial-temporal simulation and maximum possi-ble risk analysis built on counterfactual as-sumptions.
