Customer Question

Hello,
I am 12 weeks pregnant and terrified of listeria. On Sunday, we went to a party where lunch meat was served. I did not and will not eat that while I'm pregnant, but do I need to worry about my kids and my husband eating it and being around me? Do I need to worry about it being on my kids hands and touching me? This whole thing just scares me to death.

Hello,

in this case I can definitely reassure you. As long as you don´t consume contaminated food personally, such an infection is impossible.

All the best for your further pregnancy, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
