ive never eaten it pregnant. but is it ok to eat all i see on the label thats altlle worrysome is egg yolks is an ingredient in the mayo.

thanks i know sounds dumb but i gotta ask

    9w pregnant with my third and I've learned everything in moderation is fine. You also said there was an inspection there 4 days ago and things were fine so it's probably fine. You don't like fish so no worries there. Deli meats & hot dogs you're supposed to stay away from because the nitrates (known to cause cancer) aren't good for the baby. Best of luck with your delivery and I hope you don't go past your due date!

    I wouldn't eat it. Could get listeria, or other such things from deli prepared things.

    I worked at a deli in a major department/grocery store for a long time. We were suppose to check the internal temp of the food every hour... that never happened! I might happen once during my 8 hour shift... not the 8 it was suppose to. No one knew the better that we didn't do it. Not to mention we were suppose to check the sell by dates or shelf dates or display dates...whatever every morning and throw out the old stuff. Well if a customer came over when we were suppose to be doing that and we got side tracked... which happened often. It NEVER got done for the day. We would just forget. Plus you are suppose to always wear gloves when making or handling the food. Well I saw LOTS of time when it didn't happen.

    This wasn't in an icky town either, or an icky part of town. This was in the upper class part of town in a nice department/grocery store....not walmart.... So I'm sure this kinda thing happens everywhere...

    So don't eat it. Make it yourself if you want it.

    It's safe....my sister in law ate it like three times a week for the first four months she was pregnant - personally I hate the stuff and would never eat it even if I had cravings for it but Jocelyn loved it and her boys came out just fine.

    It's perfectly find to eat!

    The only things you want to avoid is tuna (eat no more than once a week due to mercury) hot dogs (up for debate, but it's b/c of the nitrates) and some will say deli meat only b/c it is more likely to have bacteria on it.

    Good luck!

    the egg you're seeing in the ingredients is the egg that goes into mayo and i'm sure you've eaten a bunch alreadyin other foods and not thought about it.. also- eggs are pastuerized now for the most part. un-past ones tend to be the un-safe ones! good luck from one prego to another!

    make sure it is directly from the refrigerator and cold when you eat it.. lysteria bacteria can be found at over 40 degrees so dont eat anything thats been left out .

    It's fine to eat. Just watch out for artificial sweeteners, Tuna and Salmon (high mercury content)..CONGRATS!
