    From memory kw123 , there are about 60 cases reported each year. Fairly low odds of getting it, less that being killed in a car accident!!

    With Listeria, if you get this when you're not pregnant does it make you sick? Just wondering if I'v ever come into contact with it before, I'v only had food poisoning once and that was overseas. I feel pretty safe to think if I havn't contracted it in my 20 odd years of eating I shouldn't get it from one day of Christmas lunch, keeping common sence and hygiene in mind .
    I think if you are worried about the possibility of listeria in your Christmas lunch that microwaving would make it worse not better (think heating up bacteria not killing it). Also if you are aware of the kitchen in which the food was prepared and you know the preparer uses safe and clean practices you have very little chance of contracting listeria.

    Ive just got cream cheese, condensed milk, melted choc, thickened cream & gelatin to set, on a bed of crushed oreos (its only 8am, is it too early to start it now?) Pm me your email address and i can send the full recipe if you like

    Oh and I add in chopped glace cherries. I tell dh cherries are fruit and fruit is healthy, thus offsetting the bad..........he doesn't buy it *shrugs shoulders*

    Ahh ok, thanks. So Listeria isn't something you can kill by heating up food really hot?

    Thanks again for starting this thread.

    It can as long as you heat it to steaming hot

    Why risk eating something that may give you listeria (no matter how small the risk)? If you lost your baby, could you justify it? Sorry bub, but I really wanted to eat that...

    In saying that I know people go overboard and everyone seems to be getting told different things to avoid and our Mums didn't avoid it etc. I just try to be cautious without being paranoid.

    I try to be cautious without being paranoid too. But recently it was in the news there was a listeria outbreak in America from the skin of in cantaloupes.... No joke... Cantaloupes.

    So generally I try to avoid food that's prepared in an unhygienic way or that I'm unsure of, anything smells weird even if it's in date etc.

    DF mentioned he shut the fridge door properly around 2am the other night, he said it was only open a crack etc but I threw out the meat.

    But I don't wipe off whole food groups I try to eat healthy & balanced diet.

    on average 60 reported cases for the population per year and less than 10 cases are usually pregnant women, with I think the yearly birth rate is around 250,000 births...

    MUCH more likely to be hit by a car (particularly in my suburb )

    Though - speaking of trifle (back a page) earlier this year grandma made a trifle for a family gathering, she served it to the grand kids, do i had a taste and it didn't taste that 'zingy' then served some to jasper. She didn't say anything till like 10 minutes later goes 'this trifle isn't great, I put HEAPS of brandy in it and you can't even taste it' WTF?!? Snatched Jasper's bowl off him! FFS! Let me know before I feed my 2 year old booze thanks! It didn't even cross my mind there would be alcohol in it when it's being served to kids.

    But as I said - my grandma has NO clue. Gonna be fun trying to specifically avoid eating anything she'd made, without her noticing, without offending her... I may just fein stomach pains and sneak off to eat toast.

    (I lie... I'll just pig out on chocolate or something )
