A 23-year-old female asked:

About 200 cases of listeria infection occurs in pregnant women out of 400 million pregnancies each year. Therefore it's uncommon. Of course you won't eat precut fruit again. If you note headache,fever,diarrhea, stiff neck over the next weeks notify your OB immediately. I think you'll be fine.
