no hot dogs while pregnant?

so im now 31 weeks and have never heard not to eat hot dogs but i just read in a book i got from the hospital birthing class that you shouldnt eat hot dogs.
Iv been eating hot dogs here and there are they really that bad for you? I dont eat them cold i cook them first plus there were a list of other foods to like soft cheeses.

  • as long as you cook them they are fine, just dont eat them right from the package.

  • I ate hot dogs (cooked, of course) while I was pregnant and turned out just fine! I've never heard not to eat them during pregnancy.

  • they say hotdogs and lunch meat unless you cook them, and who the heck is gonna heat up some lunch meat YUCK. I havent had any hotdogs during my pregnancy but the lunch meat thing, i buy the stuff thats prepackaged cause they have to cook it somehow, and I figure the stuff in the deli has more of a chance to have what ever that is (cant remember the name) since they dont clean the cutters every single time in between roast beef (that to me with the red inside is not done) and turkey.

  • As long as they are cooked it's fine - same with cold cuts, if you heat them up to kill any bacteria they should be fine.
