Wait and see.: I'm sorry, but what would have possessed you to eat sushi that sat out overnight??? That could certainly cause food poisoning, heralded by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and bad stomach cramps. Please don't do something like this again. ...Read more

I'm pregnant.I ate tuna, salmon, sushi sashimi . Is it ok for my baby? Can i eat?

Stop..: You should not be eating raw or undercooked meats/seafoods of any type during pregnancy. As far as tuna/salmon, you should limit consumption of mercury containing fish and seafood to at most twice a week. Raw foods just have too much potential for infectious disease, so for this nine months, give up the sushi and sashimi and cook your foods. ...Read more

Ate ahi tuna (sushi) often a few months before i got pregnant. Can the mercury stay in your system and harm the baby?

Ate ahi tuna (sushi) often a few months before i got pregnant. Can the mercury stay in your system and harm the baby?

/.: Ahi tuna is supposed to be high risk for mercury. Half life of mercury in body is about 2 months. That means if there were no further exposures to mercury the body would have gotten rid of about half of the mercury in body in about 2 months. Harm to fetus depends of the amount of mercury and the duration of exposure. Would suggest being off any form of sushi and even canned tuna until baby born. ...Read more

I am 19 and the last time I ate fish I was probably 3 years old. Can I try sushi or would I get a reaction cause I'm not used to seafood?

I am 19 and the last time I ate fish I was probably 3 years old. Can I try sushi or would I get a reaction cause I'm not used to seafood?

Unlikely: Unless you have a personal history of food allergies to fish or strong family history there should be no reason to be concerned about having a reaction. While a common food allergy is to shellfish (shrimp, lobster, crab) it is less common to have allergies to fish. You should be fine but certainly be aware of any reactions such as lip or tongue swelling, rash, itching or shortness of breath. ...Read more

I ate a lot of sushi and get food poisoning twice, before i realised that i get pregnant, is it will harm my baby?

Unlikely to happen: Food poisoning is more an issue localized to your digestive tract with secondary impact on how you feel & function.The fetus is isolated & protected from those events that do not involve the invasion of your blood with a germ or toxin, neither of which apply in this situation. To the extent you become dehydrated or land in the hospital it could complicate the pregnancy, but baby is pretty safe. ...Read more

Hi. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and i ate shrimp tempura sushi roll and four pieces had masago over the top. Is my baby on risk of listeria?

No: You ate cooked sushi so there is no issue. If you were pregnant and you lived in japan you would likely be eating like this many times a week. My question though is if you were not sure and were concerned it might be dangerous then why did you eat it? ...Read more
