Is cooked sushi ok?**Update pg.3**
Or is it too big a risk due to cross contamination?

I love the white dragon roll sushi --but want to be ubber careful.

I don't think it's a big deal. I still eat California rolls or veggie rolls. :)

I've always been told to avoid eating anything in a japanese restaurant due to cross contamination - personally I think that is over-dramatic but I've always just done it because I didn't want to go against Dr's orders.

Can you make it at home instead?

I have friends that eat sushi uncooked during pregnancy -- I guess they don't really see it as a big deal (I know one of them is tired of all the pregnancy restrictions.......she stays away from smoking and heavy drinking, but other than that she doesn't avoid anything).
I would think that even with cross contamination, cooking it would kill anything off......I don't see much risk in it. I mean raw chicken has all sorts of potential nasties, but perfectly safe when cooked.
Now you have me craving sushi :giggle2:

Cooked is perfectly safe.

Though I avoided all the no-no's the first time around, I am more relaxed now. Personally I think raw sushi is safe, too, as long as it has been frozen. Most sushi fish is frozen.

I eat raw sushi at least 3-4 times during the 3rd trimester. I see no problem with it.

Charlotte is there something you aren't telling us?

Actually you can eat cooked and raw. You should avoid certain fish that are higher in mercury though. Here are a couple articles on the issue... Enjoy! :)
