  • You can have cold lunch meat once in awhile, but don't make a regular habit of it. I enver realized how much lunch meat I ate until I couldn't have it when I was preggo.

  • listeria effects a very small portion of the population. You don't have to eat the meat warm, just steam it and put it in the freezer to get it cold again, if you are really worried about it. :)

  • some deli meats aren't, that is the fear. Most lunch meat, from packages may be. I don't know. I eat turkey sandwiches without warming them up as well. I just said if you were worried about it, then warm it up.
