Leave it at room temp overnight, if not infected, it should still be clear and nearly odorless. ...Read more

Can a pregnant women at 31 weeks eat sushi?

Can a pregnant women at 31 weeks eat sushi?

Sushi & pregnanc: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy.
