E. Coli genetically modified

In 2001 scientific articles reported how Monsanto produced proteins with genetically modified E. Coli.
"Monsanto developed a recombinant version of BST, brand-named Posilac, in 1994, which is produced through a genetically engineered E. coli. A gene that codes for the sequence of amino acids that make up BST is inserted into the DNA of the E. coli bacterium. The bacteria are then broken up and separated from the rBST, which is purified to produce the injectable hormone."
The Posilac was sold to Ely Lilly.
A 2007 USDA Dairy Survey estimated rBGH use at 15.2% of operations and 17.2% of cows.

In 2006 the genetically modified E. Coli was used to produce Aspartame that Monsanto registered under the name of Amino Sweet.

Was it intentional? (Germany refused to send troups to Lybia) Or Unintentional?
They say they do not know where it comes from, because I am sure THEY KNOW.
