I eat deli meat atleast once a week and I didn't think it was a problem but my coworkers tell me that I'm not supposed to. This is my third pregnancy and I've always ate turkey for lunch sometimes during those pregnancies too..
Just want some opinions, do you eat deli meat?
It's fine, just nuke it for a few seconds in the microwave.
I still eat deli meat. tastes awesome to me, but i still eat steak medium rare too. i think its fine as long as its not on every meal every day thing
You will be fine :)
Every once in a while I eat a sandwich with deli meat.
Something about listeria.
i ate a lot of things i wasn't "supposed" to.
including deli meat, brie, blue cheese, yogurt (aspartame)
Yea, it is loaded with nitrates and sodium, plus you have chance of getting listeria.
I always ate it when pregnant. I never nuked it either, just plain ol cold sammitch.
What are the risks of a pregnant woman getting listeriosis?
According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), an estimated 1,700 persons become seriously ill each year in the United States and among these, 260 will die. Although the CDC states that pregnant women are 20 times more likely to become infected than non-pregnant healthy adults, the number of cases of listeriosis in pregnant women is about 17%.
