    some sushi places are so busy during lunch periods that the rolls are never left sitting for more than half an hour. however if it's not one of those places and does seem to have been sitting there a while then you might want to give it a miss.

    I miss sushi so much. Think I might have to start making it. Does anyone know if Japanese mayo is safe when pregnant? What mayo brands are?

    I didn't eat sushi while pregnant either. I also didn't realise that it was so easy to make! I will be doing that next time round!

    I also heard that sushi shouldn't be eaten more than twice a week due to the iodine levels. That is for everyone, not just pregnant women.

    Just look on the ingredients. Anything with egg don't eat as you can't be sure the egg has been cooked. The majority of low fat mayo is fine as they don't use eggs. Don't use whole egg mayo either for the same reasons!

    The answer is no. This coming from someone who recently went to hospital from a major dose of food poisoning after eating what I thought was 'safe' sushi. It's actually the rice that contains the listeria in the highest doses. The doctor at the hospital told me to avoid anything made with rice from take away places because of the high chance of getting food poisoning regardless of what else is with it.

    The risks of getting listeria are really, really low. There are about 60 odd reported cases in Australia every year (it's mandatory that it's reported when a doctor diagnoses it), and of those cases, not all of them are pregnant women. It is VERY dangerous for an unborn baby if you do get it - it almost inevitably ends in a miscarriage or stillbirth - but it is an exceedingly small number of people who actually do get it.

    My personal risk assessment is that ^ plus that Japanese women don't stop eating sushimi and sushi throughout their pregnancies, French women don't stop eating soft cheeses, Italian women don't stop drinking wine daily - and their health outcomes are better than ours for infant and maternal wellbeing.

    I actually have to laugh incredulously when I see somebody on here posting that something like freshly made vegetarian sushi is not okay to eat - but a Big Mac is fine so long as you ask for it without lettuce. It just seems all so upside down to me.

    I actually agree that it's better if you can make stuff at home for the most part, you can control the quality and freshness to a MUCH greater degree than you can from a take-away joint...but honestly, if you trust the quality of the take-away joint you're buying from, (ie ask them how long ago was their sushi rice cooked and how has it been stored since then, and get them to make you up a fresh handroll), my personal risk assessment would be that I would eat it.

    People seem to be confusing listeria with 'normal' food poisoning. They're not the same thing.

    So agree with your post! I find the lysteria hysteria rather fascinating. Big mac a better food choice than sashimi? Never!! Obviously you want to make sure the store is reputable and hygienic but I've never had an issue with any I have gone too. Eating the ginger you get with sushi is also a way to keep any bacteria at bay, just to be extra safe.

    Although i know the risk of contracting listeria is really really low, the consequences of contracting listeria are so devastating i choose to minimise this risk anyway i can. I can live without sushi, soft cheese and alcohol for 9 months, despite loving all 3!
