I rwad that we are not suppose to eat deli meat? Do you think that includes sandwich meats? And the deli cut ham? I don't by the ham directly from deli but It is in the sandwich meats. Just want to be safe.
Yeah, it includes everything--including the ham and stuff you can buy in packages to make sandwhiches at home, hot dogs, etc. You just have to heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave to kill the bacteria.
Jocelyn Gabriel Grayson and due in September!
Your risk for listeria is very very low. There are like 2500 cases of it the whole united states with a population of 300 million so the risk is low especially because the meats are processed. I never knew about this until my 3rd pregnancy and read it on JM. If it sounds good and stays down I am all about it.
I asked my ob and she specifically said packaged deli meats are ok but do not keep in fridge more than 3-5 days as well as fresh deli meats and just don't over do it. But my ob also ate sushi most her pregnancy
My dr never said anything about it and since they gave me cold sandwiches in the hospital when I was pregnant, I never worried about it. I do have them toast my sandwich at Subway though. More because I like it warm though.
