    feta or chèvre?

    as far as I'm aware both are considered soft cheeses and not on the safe list. great that you've had no issues, but I would recommend avoiding during pregnancy.

    Feta is actually fine to eat as long as it's pasteurised as far as my research tells me.

    I was told that as long as it is cooked it's ok. I ate it cooked in things all the way along my pregnancy. It's scary though when you accidentally eat something you're not sure is ok or not.

    Yeah my Google search suggests the same. Thanks.
    It is when I'm trying to be so careful! I can officially day baby is due next month so that's exciting. Have tried to enjoy this pregnancy and have most of the time, but will be glad when I can see and hold bubs!

    I found these to be the best documents for explaining what is safe/unsafe to eat and why certain foods are a listeriosis risk;
    http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/...y_brochure.pdf

    http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/..._pregnancy.pdf

    Any soft or semi soft cheese needs to be heated above 75 degrees to be considered safe.

    OP please don't freak out - the cheese was cooked. BUT do arm yourself with the correct information about what is safe/unsafe and make a considered decision about what to consume based on accurate information.

    I ate heaps of stuff that I'm not supposed to when I was pregnant (without knowing til after that I wasn't supposed to eat it) my baby is fine. I think it's good to be careful (and I will be more careful next time) but I wouldn't dwell on something you've already eaten because sometimes I think they get carried away with what we can and can't eat etc

    Default Goats cheese

    It's nothing to do with being goat other than some of the goats cheeses aren't pasteurised which is a problem. But heat pasteurises anyway....

    All cheese goat or cow is pasteurised in Australia by law.

    But yes if it's cooked it's fine regardless. And even if it cools down to lukewarm its not enough time to grow listeria. Don't stress.

    This is true but listeria is still a risk. Jindi cheese had an outbreak in early 2013 linked to a miscarriage and three deaths. It's more rare in Australia but still a risk.

    Eta: OP, I think because it was cooked and you ate it fairly soon after it is fine, there would have been no time for bacteria to reproduce.
