Safe to eat caviar during pregnancy?

Patient: Is it safe to eat Cavier while pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your query.It is safe and good to eat caviar (fish eggs) during pregnancy. But apt care should be taken to see the product information and check if it has been thoroughly pasteurised. If it has not been properly properly then it could lead to listeria during pregnancy. You can directly contact the manufactures for additional information on how it has been pasteurised, however if there is no sufficient information available it is advisable to not to ingest or eat the same.Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
