Safe, But...

Make sure they are fully cooked!

Pregnant women can enjoy hamburgers (beef) if they are fully and properly cooked. According to the FDA, pregnant women should cook ground beef to at least 160°F and should not eat any raw or undercooked beef. According to Livestrong, undercooked or spoiled burger patties may contain food-borne bacteria such as Listeria, which can cause severe health complications for pregnant women and their babies, and E. Coli.
