Safe, But...

Enjoy it in limited amounts!

Pregnant women can enjoy imitation crabmeat as part of the two six-ounce servings of low mercury cooked seafood they eat per week if it is made from Hake or other low mercury fish. Due to high levels of mercury, the FDA recommends a limit on the amount and kind of seafood pregnant women ingest to prevent harm to themselves and their baby. Additionally, pregnant women should only eat imitation crabmeat if it is fully cooked. According to the FDA, pregnant women should not eat any raw or undercooked seafood and should cook fish to at least 145°F.
