    Ordered a Greek salad and asked the people at the restaurant if the feta is pasteurized and they said yes. Can I eat it?

    Thanks. Does anyone know what a doctor would say? I read online many different sources that pasteurized is okay.. I would feel awful if I miscarried just because feta sounds good.. Need more advice.

    if they bought their feta from a local grocery store it will be pasteurized. If they say its pasteurized than I'm sure it is-but if you r in doubt...skip it

    There is no 'black and white' answer here. Some sources say anything pasturized is absolutely fine, some sources have a limitation of what cheeses are OK, regardless if they are pasturized. My doctor was of the ANYTHING that is pasturized is absolutely fine mentality.

    My docor said no on friday and that she would never trust the person telling them its pasteurized unless he was a top chef and made it himself. Worth the risk?

    Most cheeses in the US are pasteurized.

    I read on baby center a few women lost their babies from listeria and they only ate hard cheeses. Nothing is safe apparently.

    We just had a huge listeria breakout this summer because of Cantaloupe. You can eat the 'safe' cheeses all day long, and still get it because of an improperly washed fruit!!

    my doctor told me to avoid unpasteurised cheese, but even then not to worry if you slip up once or twice. people all over the world eat all kinds of stuff all the time. she said it's very difficult to unstick a healthy baby. i think people worry far too much. eat healthily. don't gorge yourself on pate and brie and dodgy looking deli salads. but you're not sick. you need to be able to go out for a meal and enjoy yourself.
