‘Cannibal sandwiches’sicken Wisconsin residents
MILWAUKEE — “Cannibal sandwich-es,” an appetizer featuring raw, leanground beef served on cocktail bread,may be a Wisconsin tradition, but theyare not safe, health ofﬁcials said, notingthat more than a dozen people became illafter consuming them last holiday sea-son.Health ofﬁcials conﬁrmed four casestied to E. coli bacteria and 13 likelycases in people who ate the sandwichesat several gatherings late last year, theCenters for Disease Control andPrevention said a report issued thisweek. The meat came from a Watertownmarket that later recalled more than2,500 pounds of meat.Cannibal sandwiches were tied to out-breaks in Wisconsin in 1972, 1978 and1994. The appetizer, also called “tigermeat,” “steak tartare” or simply “groundbeef,” is usually a simple dish of leanground meat seasoned with salt and pep-per on rye cocktail bread with sliced rawonion, said Milwaukee historian JohnGurda, who served it at his 1977 weddingreception. Occasionally, a raw egg willbe mixed with the meat.Cannibal sandwiches have been a fes-tive dish in German, Polish and otherethnic communities in the Milwaukeearea since the 19th century, Gurda said.The 66-year-old said it was once com-mon to see them at wedding receptions,meals following funerals and Christmasand New Year's Eve parties. The dish hasbecome less common in recent yearswith greater awareness of the risks of uncooked meat and fewer people eatingbeef, but Gurda said he still runs into it.“It’s like a coarse pate and when youput the onions on, there's a crunch aswell and that kind of cuts the softness,”he said.Keith Meyer, who runs L&M Meats, aKenosha butcher shop started by hisfather, recalled his German grandfatherand other “old guys” gobbling theground beef when he was growing up.With his grandfather gone, Meyer's fam-ily no longer serves the dish, but the 57-year-old said, “It’s really not that bad, if you get by the texture of it.” “It's like eating a cold hamburgerthat’s a little on the raw side,” Meyeradded.His butcher shop sells 50 to 100pounds of freshly ground round onChristmas Eve, New Year's Eve and per-haps a day before those holidays to peo-ple wishing to make cannibal sandwich-es. Glenn’s Market and Catering, theWatertown butcher involved in therecall, does a similar holiday business,vice president Jeff Roberts said.Both stores label their ground beef with warnings about consuming raw orundercooked meat, but the men said it'sunlikely people are buying it to cook.With the fat trimmed off before grind-ing, the meat is too lean to make adecent hamburger, Meyer said.
