Safe, But...

Heat it up!

Pregnant women can eat cold cuts if they are reheated until steaming hot or 165°F and if they do not contain nitrates or nitrites, according to Livestrong, the CDC and the FDA. According to the USDA, cold cuts may contain Listeria, a harmful bacteria that can cause severe health complications for pregnant women and their babies. Listeria grows on meat at refrigirator temperatures.
