I eat deli meat atleast once a week and I didn't think it was a problem but my coworkers tell me that I'm not supposed to. This is my third pregnancy and I've always ate turkey for lunch sometimes during those pregnancies too..



Just want some opinions, do you eat deli meat?

It's fine, just nuke it for a few seconds in the microwave.

Every once in a while I eat a sandwich with deli meat.
Something about listeria.

Yea, it is loaded with nitrates and sodium, plus you have chance of getting listeria.

What are the risks of a pregnant woman getting listeriosis?




According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), an estimated 1,700 persons become seriously ill each year in the United States and among these, 260 will die. Although the CDC states that pregnant women are 20 times more likely to become infected than non-pregnant healthy adults, the number of cases of listeriosis in pregnant women is about 17%.
