Wisconsin health department urges families to avoid eating raw meat

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is urging families to avoid eating raw meat.

"For many #Wisconsin families, raw meat sandwiches are a #holiday tradition, but eating raw meat is NEVER recommended because of the bacteria it can contain," the department said in a tweet on Monday.

The department added that ground beef should always be cooked to 160 degrees.
