I went out for lunch today, order a veal schnitzal and asked for it to be throughly cooked. When I got my order it was kinda Pink but everyone on my table said that it was fine and veal is that colour. Stupid me ate it and now I am completely paranoid. My main concern us toxo. Do you think I am over reacting?

Not a huge veal eater but I am pretty sure it stays slightly pink

I actually cooked veal schnitzel myself at home the other night, cooked it very thoroughly and it still had a pinkness to it. So, I think your friends are right that that's just the colour veal is and it'll be fine

Veal stays a bit pink when cooked so I wouldn't worry.
I've queried my OB about how much to cook red meats like lamb and beef, mainly because the thought of eating them well done turns my stomach - where's the pleasure in eating dry, tasteless food. His advice was as long as you're confident about freshness and how the meat has been stored then a little bit pink is OK.
Pre-pregnancy I would eat lamb/beef medium rare, now it's definitely medium. I haven't had any ill effects from taking this approach. Bubba is progressing nicely.
