Undercooked Meats, Shellfish, Raw Fish
Raw shellfish and fish are not recommended during pregnancy. Before you consume these products, cook them well. The internal temperature should not be lower than 145 degrees. Use a special device (meat thermometer) to make sure that the heat is appropriate. All kinds of raw meats are not advised. The same rule applies to raw poultry. Pregnant women should not snack on raw lunch meat and hot dogs, either. Cook the products until steaming. Eggs must be cooked hard at all times. Meat spreads and pates can be eaten only if they are canned.
