I was wondering that as well. I know they say no deli meats but I'm not sure what all they mean by that. I know no bologna or hot dogs. Salami, ham.. but is turkey and chicken lunch meats alright?

No to all because of listeria bacteria. But, if you nuke it for even a little bit, you will kill it. So just think hot meat is fine but cold is a no.

I actually asked about this at my last appointment and was told that it is okay so long as the meat is heated to steamy hot that it would kill the bacteria.

Well I had turkey deli meat in a sandwich today. That's not going to hurt my bean is it?

Anyone is exposed to or could get listeriosis, but you just have a higher chance when you are pregnant. And a listeriosis infection can cause miscarriage so it's not something to blow off. Does it mean every time you eat a cold sandwich you will get it? If course not, but the recommendation stands to protect against that small chance.

Yeah, not something I worry about. I think a lot of the pregnancy don'ts go way overboard. That last big Listeria outbreak was cantaloupe so avoiding lunch meat doesn't eliminate possible exposure to it. The incidence of listeria in pregnant women using the highest estimates is 0.01%. Of course nuking your lunch meat only takes a few seconds.

I eat hot dogs (hot ones of course) and I eat deli meat. If I go to Togos or Subway, I usually get a hot sandwich. If I get an Italian BMT, I just ask them to heat the meat for about 20 seconds, it's piping hot and it tastes even better.

Yeah, and I so had the cantaloupe included in that recall!

So, if I toast a sandwich in the morning before work...do I need to heat it again at lunch time (in microwave)?

I'm really not that concerned....but trying to humor dh

Thats what im wondering about too, can i heat the meat, then cool it before i eat it?
I do like grilled sandwiches, but sometimes i just want a cold one...so u guys think after nuking, can i wait for it to cool, then eat it??not sure...

I dont worry about it. At this point with the nausea if that's all that seems appetizing then I think it's better than nothing at all. I just bought myself some today for some yummy sandwiches for lunches this week!

You know, I asked my OB during my 1st pregnancy (with DD) and she said it was fine as long as it was fresh from the deli and refidgerated properly. There is actually just as much risk of the listeria being found in/on those pre-packaged salads (bagged ones you get from stores)...honestly, I won't eat much lunch meats during my pregnancy, but I won't be cutting it out completely.

I don't eat lunch meats because of the nitrates.

But to address the main question, listeriosis chance is like 1 in 200,000 for the general population and 1 in 5000 for pregnant women, so you do have an increased risk but it's still really small. That said, if you get it, it can be pretty bad. Some women even die, as do babies.

When my m/s was really bad I just ate whatever I felt like because nearly everything was repulsive. I had smoked salmon on two occasions and I don't think it's that big a deal. Now though, I am following the recommendations and heating the salmon to steaming. It's still pretty good.
