I'm a bad mom because I ate a Listeria laced sandwich.

I'm seventeen weeks pregnant. When I first found out, I got the whole spiel about what I can and cannot eat. Lunch meat was on the list.

I've tried very hard to avoid everything on the list, but every time I drive past Subway I want to get a sandwich so bad. Yesterday, I gave in and got a sandwich.

I got to work and one of my coworkers started going on about how pregnant women aren't supposed to eat lunch meat and I was a bad mom for eating something that could contain harmful Listeria.

Did you do/eat anything that you weren't supposed to while pregnant?

You can eat lunch meat if you steam it first.  You won't know if you ate listeria yet, too early since eating it to get sick.  There is an outbreak currently though in meat, not sure if lunch meat is included.

I've eaten whatever I want. I've probably had Subway 50 times. Haven't died yet.

Even fruit can contain listeria............Just eat in your car next time and tell them to mind their own business.

I thought if it was heated until it was steaming it was okay to eat?

They have so many different rules and do's/don'ts...I'm sure our moms ate lunch meat...
