    In terms of your sandwich I wouldn't be too worried. The cheese shouldn't be a problem and the tomatoes are likely to be reasonably fresh. Did you have it toasted?
    It was toasted but under a grill, not a toastey machine which meant it wasn't very hot.

    While I don't think you need to be paranoid about these things, the guidelines are certainly worth sticking to.

    although rare, I'd prefer to err on the side of caution and not risk being another statistic.

    if it's rare, then great. but I'm not going to court unnecessary risk and eat foods that are clearly advised against.

    if you eat blue cheese and deli meats and the worst happens, then you'll feel like a selfish *** for doing so. to me, as each week goes by, you feel more and more invested.

    it's not that hard to give up "dangerous" foods for 9 months. and if you slip up and eat something silly or naughty by accident, then your overall risk exposure is still low.
