    Default Food and pregnancy

    I have read the listeria sticky, I have a couple of specific questions though:

    - Canned beetroot is ok I know but once it is stored in the fridge how long am I able to eat it for, jsut 24ish hours or a few days?

    - JAr olives- Again ok when 'fresh' but how long is it ok to eat these for, withing 24hours of opening jar or can I continue to keep it for the 2 weeks like it says on the packet?

    If the beetroot is in a sealed container in the fridge it should be fine for a week. the olives are probably in a salted solution and will be right for a couple of weeks as listeria cannot live in such conditions.

    Both those foods are not high risk and the most you'll get is gastro if they are off

    If you're worried buy yourself a bunch of air tight containers and keep them in that. Also a fridge thermometer, your fridge temp needs to be between 0 and 4 degrees.
