In brief: Need testing

Impossible to know whether toxoplasma gondii was present or infected you without testing you for antibodies.
If you are pregnant and seeing an OB doctor you may have already been tested and if you had antibodies then your fetus is safe.

The incidence of toxoplasmosis is low in the US while pork consumption is high. Furthermore, though not sure of incidence, not all pork is contaminated. The chance u got todo from this experience is very low probability.
