    I realllllllllllllly have the strongest craving for a smoked turkey, lettuce and mayo sandwich but have read that deli meats aren't safe???

    Can anyone tell me if it's true or can I go and indulge?!!

    Deli Meat: Deli meats have been known to be contaminated with listeria, which can cause miscarriage. Listeria has the ability to cross the placenta and may infect the baby leading to infection or blood poisoning, which may be life-threatening. If you are pregnant and you are considering eating deli meats, make certain that you reheat the meat until it is steaming.

    This one is the one i had trouble with with my 1st pregnancy too cos there was conflicting advice all over. I asked my doctor this question (about all deli meat, pre packaged) and he said it was fine to eat as long as it was from a reputable place. Think this one is an each to their own one as there's no certain yes or no, set in stone answer :shrug: wish the health profs would make up their minds

    Any chance you could like it toasted with cheese instead of the lettuce and mayo - then it gets heated and you can eat safely?! Just a suggestion...:flower:
