A 20-year-old female asked:

Can pregnant women eat uncooked hot dogs?

UncookedorUnheated?: You should not eat any raw meat, fish, or eggs if you are pregnant. However, most packaged hot dogs have been previously cooked, and can be eaten unheated, provided they have been properly refrigerated and are not past their expiration date. Check label - should state: "fully cooked." most hot dogs contain a lot of calories, fat, and additives, so they're not the healthiest food, esp if pregnant.
