This is about the 10th I've heard about in the last 3 years.  Cantalope was really bad for a few years there.

I feel bad for the lost baby.  I know we are told not to eat many things while pregnant, and it gets hard to follow the rules.  But ladies, cheeses, deli meats, and seafoods are not where you should smudge the line.  No soft cheeses, they are very prone to listeria bacteria.  Deli meats go in and out of a fridge all day as they are cut to order, which allows bacteria to multiply and grow.  Seafoods need to be properly prepared and eaten as fresh as possible.
