One possibility: Taenia saginata (beef tapeworm) may be one of the parasites in undercooked bison. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0002366/.

Not likely: If farm raised and not just captured from yellowstone, then the risk of parasites would be no higher than the risk for under cooked beef.
