Now if you go to the deli, there are some that are nitrate free, you just have to ask for it.

This is all just so confusing. So much conflicting information from various sources. Being pregnant is tough lol

Great thread! So much info. If I'm confused about anything, I just avoid it. Better safe than sorry. I just want to mention the difference between things that are ok in moderation vs not at all and why.
Something like tuna has mercury, its not a bacteria, but the mercury level is what the issue is, so eating it in in moderation means that you should not expose the baby to dangerous levels of mercury. Even so, I choose to avoid it, but medically speaking, tuna is an "in moderation" food.

Cold cuts, when speaking of the listeria, its not a level, its a bacateria. Eating it in moderation doesn't make it safe. It only takes one time to be exposed to listeria. Like others have pointed out, you can eat it throughout your whole pregnancy, and never get sick, or you can eat it just once, and be exposed to listeria. I just wanted to clarify that, because I've had this conversation before and some people still seem to think that lunch meat is ok in moderation. Anyone that chooses to eat it, that's their choice, but they should be making an informed decision, and know that eating it in moderation doesn't make it safe. For the person whose doctor said it was ok in moderation, I would be very worried! That is something an OB should know!

Awesome points. And Tina, it is so confusing! I agree. I agree with the when in doubt avoid it.

Hot dogs are filled with nitrates and are advised to avoid during pregnancy.

That was me. I dont think my doctor was implying that it was safe in moderation necissarily, but that if I eat it once in a while that the LIKELIHOOD that I would get listeriosis would be much lower than if I ate it every single day. Which is true. But to your point, you can eat it one time and get it, so I am reconsidering eating it at all.

My perinatologist told me that eating cold cuts that I keep at home (like the prepackaged kind) are okay to eat because I'd keep those refrigerated at all times. He mentioned that places like Subway are MOST LIKELY safe to eat cold cuts from during pregnancy- he said it's not the cold cuts themselves, it's how long they've been sitting at room temperature (he said SOME places, like local delis, actually will leave their cold cuts out overnight). He felt that Subway being a large chain does not do that because they have rules set in place, to protect themselves mainly. And he said you can always ask before ordering, if you tell them you are pregnant and need to know how long the meats have been left out they will tell you.

That being said, I still haven't eaten cold cuts except for the ones at home. And even then, I've heated them and let it cool back down to room temp. Unfortunately for me, I hate heated sandwiches with an absolute passion lol

I do, however, indulge in a lovely tuna sandwich from Subway about once a month! Yum yum!

Check when they make their tuna. I used to work at Subway, and they will keep the same tuna for a couple of days before throwing it out. Even here, when I ask, they will tell me it was made Yesterday Morning, meaning it's been out and refrigerated 2-3 times. Not good. I will only eat their tuna if it was just made, or I order a veggie and make my own tuna at home.
