Any cheese that is pasteurized is safe, regardless of whether or not it is a soft cheese. Here is the no no list of cheese: soft cheeses that are unpasteurized, mold-ripened cheeses like Brie or Camembert, or blue-veined cheeses such as Stilton and Gorgonzola (the blue veins are mold). Typically that type of mozzarella is NOT pasteurized so you probably can't have it but if you can ensure that it says pasteurized, you are good.

Thanks for the info, Crystal! I'll ask hubby to check the packaging before he purchases it.

I doubled checked during my nurse's appt yesterday and she said it should be fine. I'm traveling to Italy on Sunday and I can't eat red sauce or greasy foods (pg related and happened with most of my previous ones too) so I'll be living on anything with olive oil and cheese so I asked specifically for which cheeses. She said the big ones are
  • Brie
  • Feta
  • Camembert
  • Blue cheese
  • Some Mexican-style cheeses
Most stores/restaurants use pasteurized cheeses (or cheese made from pasteurized milk which is fine).

In the US, nearly all the 'basic' cheeses you buy at a market like brie, mozzarella, goat etc are pasteurized.

I know b/c I often serve cheese at parties and have had a lot of preggo friends. So I always check when I buy - Id have to go out of my way to buy unpastuerized 'basic' cheese.
