my doctor told me that even pasteurized brie is not safe.. really sorry i don't want to worry you!! but thought i would tell you what he said!

he told me that if it is cooked, and piping hot, then it is safe as the bacteria is not able to multiply then so maybe you could bake it??

this is from the nhs website:

Soft cheese and listeria

Pregnant women are advised not to eat some types of soft cheese because they can contain listeria bacteria. Types of cheese to avoid include:
soft mould-ripened cheeses such as camembert, brie or chèvre (a type of goats' cheese) and others with a similar rind
soft blue-veined cheeses, such as Danish blue, gorgonzola and roquefort
Listeria bacteria cause listeriosis, which usually causes flu-like symptoms, but can lead to serious problems such as miscarriage or stillbirth, or severe illness in a newborn baby.
Thorough cooking should kill any bacteria, so it should be safe to eat cooked soft cheeses or dishes that contain them, such as baked brie or deep-fried camembert. Hard blue cheeses such as stilton are safe to eat without cooking.


don't think it is to do with whether or not it is pasteurized it is more to do with listeria (same reason they recommend no deli meats/ice cream etc

Yep definitely no pasteurised Brie if you're going by the official advice. It is a risk... However my sister made the same mistake thinking it was OK & ate it right through her pregnancy with no problems. I wouldn't eat it unless hot, but it's up to you x

I'm afraid she's correct ... it's because it's mould-ripened that it's considered a listeria risk, it's not related to the pasteurisation (that happens before it's mould-ripened).

Pasteurized cheeses are fine. People worry about soft cheese, but I have to tell you, ALL CHEESE IS MOLD. It is. My doctor laughed at me last time because I was worried about everything. I can tell you that I ate all different kinds of soft cheese and it didn't cause an problems. The problem I had was genetic and the cheese had zero affect. I have been eating soft cheese this time too. Some doctors and some people are very concerned over anything that has the chance of causing any troubles are very minor.

Yup. Exactly. I know none of us want to take the risk (me included, I love brie and stilton and I haven't eaten them since before I started ttc) but at times it does feel a little bit like mass hysteria...
