Thread: Liverwurst During Pregnancy?

    Default Liverwurst During Pregnancy?

    I bought a VERY small chunk of braunschweiger/liverwurst during a recent trip to a local meat market and didn't even stop to think that it might not be safe for me to eat right now.

    I did a search online to see if I could find anything, and wasn't able to find a whole lot on it. I found one article from Canada that said liver itself was safe (only about 3oz. per month), but then said to avoid liverwurst.

    I would call my OBs office if it weren't a Saturday, but that's obviously not an option for me right now. Thanks to anyone who can give me a decisive answer on this one. If I need to give it to my dad instead of eating it myself I will.

    Ok. Now I'm even more confused. I can't tell if liverwurst is considered a meat patte or not. (Sorry, I'm not up and up on all of the terminology)

    Maybe if I call my friend (who has 2 kids) she'll know.

    Just called and spoke with an OB nurse and she says that it's ok. I still feel apprehensive about it though and may try calling the OB that's on call.

    I know that it has been a few days but I would not eat it unless you are totally comfortable doing so. If you have any doubt I would just let it go. Sorry this is so late.

    I love liverwurst. But I remember something when I was pregnant (7 years ago) about listeria concerns (I hope I'm getting that right) and stuff like liverwurst was a bit of a concern. The risk wasn't huge, of course, but you'd never want to do anything that you might regret later. "If only I hadn't . . ." or "If only I had . . ." is something I never want to say in parenting ("If only I had checked to make sure her seat belt was buckled", etc.).

    That being said, I haven't heard ANY news or concerns about listeria recently.

    I never did call the OB, but will ask the next time I'm in the office. I took a bite, decided I didn't like the taste of it, and gave the rest to my FIL.

    There ya go. I'm not sure I have ever tasted liverwurst. I'm thinking I'd avoid it, pregnant or not! Not worth it, even if you DO like Liverwurst.

    In Australia you'd be told to steer very clear of it - any processed meat is off limits, as is soft cheese, pate, anything from a bain marie such as bought sandwiches, anything reheated etc. The list is depressing and not very conducive to an ordinary diet.

    I ignored most of it, I think this lysteria hysteria is pretty over the top. How many people do you know who've had lysteriosis? I dont know anybody.
