Re: The reason behind no sandwich meat.

Also listeria is the most common cause of second trimester loss. For a sandwich? Not worth the risk for me.

Someone on another message board just had a friend lose her term baby to listeria. I will do everything I can to avoid something like that. No soft serve either.
