Over in Wisconsin, the holiday treat of choice isn't gingerbread cookies or a seasonal 17% ABV beer -- it's apparently something called a "cannibal sandwich." This delicacy consists of raw ground beef, onions, seasoning, and crackers/bread, and, in a truly interesting twist, the Center for Disease Control kinda hates it.
The CDC dropped a report last week urging
people stupid people not to eat uncooked meats, regardless of their weird regional holiday traditions. The report blamed cannibal sammies for more than 50 cases of foodborne illness in Wisconsin in 1972, 1978, and 1994, and at least four E. coli infections (possibly over a dozen) in 2012.
