...Hot Dogs?

Safe, But...

Make sure they are fully cooked!

Pregnant women can eat hot dogs if they are heated until steaming hot or 165°F, according to the CDC and the FDA. According to the USDA, hot dogs 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.
