Health officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are warning people in Wisconsin to avoid so-called “cannibal sandwiches.”

It’s an appetizer featuring raw ground beef on cocktail bread, and the occasional raw egg.

“Cannibal sandwiches” are a popular Wisconsin tradition during the holiday season.
