    I was at an italian restaurant at the weekend and specifically chose a meal without any cheese as was worried about what type it was. But when the meal came out they had grated cheese all over it. I think it was grana padana cheese which is a raw milk cheese. I'm worried about listeriosis which can take weeks to develop and can have no symptoms. Have any of you guys eaten cheese on the no-no list?

    I did the day before I found out it was some sort of blue cheese. Also my friend ate cheese to be avoided throughout her holiday as she didn't know she was pg and now has a healthy 1 year old!

    I've heard that it's ok to eat them if they're cooked, right? The same as you can eat heated up deli meats?

    thanks girls. I guess there's nothing I can do about it now. i'll just have to avoid it in the future like you say. its reassurring to hear that others have made similar mistakes without incident :)
