I know my opinion may not hold much credit as I have never been preg, but I really feel we as a society are getting so wrapped up in foods. Such as allergies, studies have shown avoidance in kids makes reactions worse when they are exposed. same as avoiding vaccines and then dying from the disease.
totaly agree with i dont see why people are worried about peanuts etc during pregnancy. when i was a kid it was very rare to see anyone with an allergy to food now every second kid has one.
however this is about listeria and if contracted during pregnancy chances are the baby will die.
the rules here in OZ are you are able to eat left overs after 1 day but no longer and re heat until piping hot only as long as it was put in the fridge ASAP and not left out on the bench for too ling before refridgerating.
i know you would have eaten it already but in case anyone else was wondering.
