5 months pregnant and ate lunch meat two days in a row should I be worried about getting listeria?
Probably not: Unless there is a recall of the brand you ate you are probably fine. In the future avoid soft, unpasteurized cheeses such as Brie and Camembert and if you still want to eat lunch meat and are worried, heat it. Heat kills Listeria. In the meantime if you have any symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, or fever, see your doctor, early treatment will protect your baby. http://www.foodsafety.gov/poisoning/causes/bacteriaviruses/listeria/ ...Read more
