Re: Eating lunch meat while pregnant
I ate lunch meat all the time when I was pg with my first, and no ill effects. But I've been careful this time, b/c there was a huge listeriosis outbreak up here in Canada with Maple Leaf meats in August/Sept!!! Tons of people throughout the country got sick. I didn't hear about any pg women, though. I never worried about it before b/c I thought the risk to be sooooo low. But the outbreak changed my outlook and I'm not willing to risk it anymore. I'd heat it first if I ever got a craving.
