    I've been a mild worry wart (if that exists haha), of all the foods I know are no nos I don't eat them. I sometimes eat subway which I think is on the no list but when I crave it I assume my body thinks its okay >__>

    I have eaten ham but I ask them to slice it freshly (like cut open a new packet etc same with silverside etc)...

    I'm worried about these types of things even when I'm not pregnant! LOL it can kill us, let alone our babies

    Suppose another good reason to stay away from the foods they tell us to. Now just have to remember that it wasn't something I've eaten or would eat and try not to stress about it; even through I will look at every food now and wonder about it.

    Default Listeria Outbreak in Five States

    I'm actually finding food choices in the city limited. I don't want fast food and have to avoid the "good" foods as I don't know their hygiene practices. I'm too sleepy and the thought of being in the kitchen makes me sick so can't prepare my own stuff, end up resorting to frozen meals which aren't good either

    Default Listeria Outbreak in Five States

    I totes understand people who are religious about avoiding listeria foods. I don't think anyone is the perfect pregnant woman however.

    Some drink a little too much coffee, some drink no coffee but have subway sometimes.

    Some do yoga and avoid soft cheese but have a glass of wine at the end of their second trimester.

    Some take a bit longer to quit smoking in early pregnancy but do everything else perfectly.

    There are a gazillion scenarios! My soft serve indulgence is another woman's (insert imperfect pregnant behavior here). More self-sacrificing my tail!

    That is all.

    Hello, we live in a first world country with an ABUNDANCE of other foods not just the few mentioned. You certainly won't starve by not having these things for a few short months. I personally think the dangers involved of eating these foods is too great a risk to take and avoided everything on the listeria list when pregnant.

    Well I agree with this!

    Thanks for posting this; I'm really surprised because I was under the impression listeria couldn't grow in pasteurized cheeses...
    I did see the recall over packaged whole hams a couple of months back too, might be best to heat them up if you're eating them over Xmas!
