Which Cheese Are Unsafe During Pregnancy
Unpasteurized cheese and other raw dairy products and meats could be contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that can cause serious infections and complications during pregnancy.
"Don't think that just because you use the cheese at home that it's safer. It's not," Dr Magee says. "We recommend that our patients wash all raw vegetables, thoroughly cook all meat products and avoid any unpasteurized cheese or milk products.
"Finally, if you plan to eat leftovers, thoroughly heat them."
