Why can't pregnant women eat crab?

Why can't pregnant women eat crab?

The new FDA and EPA: guidelines published last summer, 2014, say: yes, it is ok. One might think that scavengers--like crab, and, yes lobtster, might have higher levels from what they scavenge,but it turns out that only the big fish predators at the top of the fish-eat-fish food chain really concentrate all that methyl-mercury (from our coal-burning power plants). Recent data is best, as we continue to contaminate. ...Read more

Hi I'm 29 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I would like to know if pregnant women can eat imitation crab???

YESImitation is made: from Pollock. FDA guidelines on seafood: Scavengers like crab and lobtster actually have low levels. Only the predators at the top of the fish-eat-fish food chain concentrate methyl-mercury (from our coal-burning power plants) to dangerous levels. Recent data is best, as we continue to contaminate. Several have a max/wk. See http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodborneIllnessContaminants/Metals/ucm393070 ...Read more

How much imitation crab meat in sushi is ok to eat while pregnant?

How much imitation crab meat in sushi is ok to eat while pregnant?

Sushi & pregnancy.: 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. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more

Ate crab cakes that were prepared (cooked crab) a few days before they were fried when i was 6 weeks pregnant. If i didn't get sick, could there be a pr?

No: Eseafood consumption risk is due to mercury. This occurs in large ocean going fish with a long lifespan. Crabs do not live long enough for tis to occur; a toxic insult at that gestational age results in miscarriage generally. Whatever problems that may occur will not be a result of the crab cakes. Don't worry. ...Read more

Can eating crab legs during a pregnancy hurt the baby?

Can eating crab legs during a pregnancy hurt the baby?

Likely not: As long as they were cooked well, there is little likihood of any harm to the baby. Also, i'm assuming you didn't eat 500 pounds of them either.The caution with fish and seafood during pregnancy is mainly related to mercury contained in them, and if you just ate them a few times in normal quantities, you did not put the baby at risk. Always cook your food well an dwash hands, esp. When pregnant! ...Read more

Ate two crab cakes (phillips lump crab that comes from se asia) when 6 weeks pregnant. Anything to worry about with crab from that area?

Not a problem: The seafood from that area is processed and inspected. It then enters the consumer chain and when you get it, cooking should eliminate anything that might make you sick. There is nothing in seafood from that area which would harm your developing baby. ...Read more
