Driving a car is dangerous any time, less so when you are wearing a seatbelt.
Eating anything has the potential to cause harm, but why would you not lessen the risk by wearing your 'seatbelt' ( or avoiding the more dangerous ) ? Just my opinion if course
ETA - "I Told you so" is never helpful to either party. Perhaps more a thought to be kept to ones self.

Ah these kinds of comments always make me lol, all this tisking about what other women should and shouldn't do...it's so paternalistic to assume a grown woman can't make an informed choice.
In general (ie not directed at London), I think it's really good for us to know about listeria and take precautions- soft cheese seems to be a higher listeria risk than many other foods so I choose to avoid it. I also limit my intake of other foods like cold meats, and yes even soft serve- but I do eat them sometimes.
I posted this because its important to know when there is increased risk so we can be more vigilant in such cases. I certainly didn't intend it to be preachy as some of the posts which have taken shots at other people's choices have been. I repeat- soft serve is my weakness!
As others have pointed out there are risks in everything and it's impossible to avoid them all.
Some people are better with avoiding some risks than others. If you choose to eat certain foods-great! I'm not judging you! If you choose not to, well done! No judgement. But to take shots at other people over what they door to suggest that they'll get what's coming to them is self-righteous.
