Burger during pregnancy?

I'm 33 weeks pregnant, if I order a cheese burger from applebee's is it okay if I get it well done, does that rule out all chances of listeria or any other bacteria? Is it safe to eat?

  • Yes- it's safe!!! It's chicken you have to really make sure is well done, but it's safe.

  • I've eaten all restaurant steaks and burgers medium during my pregnancy, and I'm still perfectly healthy. You'll be fine =]

  • It's totally fine. Try not to worry so much; all that worrying about little things is going to be worse for your baby than a burger!!
