(C) as little risk as one chance in a million that it will cause
(D) a risk as little as one chance in a million for causing

what is correct usage - 'risk of causing' .. or 'risk for causing'

It will be great if someone can guide me with usage of "risk"

I went with D here.

"little risk" doesn't sound correct to me.

IMO B
"chance of" is the right idiom; risk of will be right as well.
