Question:

Is it safe to eat Unpasturized cheese during Pregnancy

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I'm 12wks pregnant is it bad to eat unpasturized cheese?


Answer:

It's not safe to eat or drink anything made with raw milk including unpasturized cheese during pregnancy. Raw milk and the food made from it can carry disease-causing organisms, including a bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. Listeriosis (the infection caused by Listeria) is relatively rare, but pregnant women are particularly susceptible, and the infection can be devastating and even deadly for unborn babies.
