Cannibalism is in most cases a realistic scenario that would possibly occur with alarming frequency in a zombie apocalypse. There is no law and you're starving. You won't be punished(naturally anyway), so it is quite a temptation. With that, it would probably be something many survivors must face, and is sort of second nature in a zombie apocalypse. Alongside bandits.
It is very easy to do such evil deeds, and many will always take the easy way out. With no punishment, they reap the rewards and that only encourages it further. I'd be more surprised were it not included than anything.
