I brought this and hot dogs up with my doctor (specifically hot dogs because I craved them a LOT). He told me that it's more likely that I was simply ingesting too much sodium from them than me contracting Listeria. He said in moderation is fine. I did hear about Listeria and it made me paranoid...but I worked at Subway for 95% of my pregnancy and the cravings for sandwiches after working were almost unbearable haha. The first timester I heated the sandwich meat up in the microwave but after that I just ate the sandwiches that i wanted. With questions like this, you'll ask 100 people and get close to 100 different answers. Just talk to your doctor, look at the info you have access to and decide what is best for you.
