Most likely no: There are some foods, like sushi or homemade unpasteurized cheese, that carry listeria that can lead to newborn infection and sepsis. It is best that you share this information with your OB immediately, so they can decide if the food you ingested was a suspected one, and if so how to treat you properly to avoid transmission to the fetus.
