Deli meats like Parma ham or salami are raw and should not be eaten when pregnant.

I'm new to all this - only got our BFP yesterday and i'm busy trying to work out whats ok and whats not. The list at the start of this thread is very helpful, as are the comments on here. The only one I am unsure about is cold meats? Is a supermarket bought pack of ham or chicken ok? Not from the deli counter, but the pre-packed stuff? Just thinking about my lunches of salad or sandwiches.
Thank you so much

Congratulations on your pregnancy BissyRocket. :)

There is no advice in the UK to avoid cold cooked pre packed meats and you'll find that most woman that have been pregnant have eaten them at one time or another with no ill effects.

This is the advice from the NHS


Cold meats and smoked salmon

Some countries advise pregnant women not to eat cold meats or smoked fish because of the risk of listeria. In the UK, we don't advise women to avoid these products because the risk is low. The risk of listeria is much higher with cheeses such as camembert, brie or chevre (a type of goat's cheese) and others with a similar rind, or pâté, which you shouldn't eat during pregnancy. However, if you are concerned, you might also choose to avoid cold meats and smoked fish while you are pregnant.
