  • There is a small risk of getting listeria, which can cause miscarriage or stillbirth. If you are worried, ask your OBGYN for their opinion.

  • they don't generally :) the only issues is that they "MAY" contain a bacteria that is bad for unborn babies.
    technobunny answered your question on that other post as to why they recommend not to eat them.

  • The reason people say that is because of nitrates and listeria.

  • i eat cold cuts all the time just yesterday i had like... 3 LOL

    just make sure the place you are eating at isnt disgusting and dirty and the meat is good... no harm done.

  • As long as the meat is "good" (as in not rotting) enjoy it.

    I ate lunchmeats throughout all three of mine. If it's questionable that the meat is good, then avoid it. If you know it's good....make a sandwich!

  • i ahve never heard thi at all.What i have heard tho is meats that are UNCURED meaning not stuff from subway or places like that.Meats that are uncured have to be labeled that way and are normally in specialty delis and stores.Also soft cheeses are bad as they are not pasturizez. i would not worry abotu the lunchables lol or the cold cuts you are eating.Are there rare cases of food poisoning? sure, but overall the meats are ssafe.
