...Panela Cheese?

Safe, But...

Make sure it is made with pasteurized milk!

Non-imported Panela Cheese made with pasteurized milk is considered safe for pregnant women according to the American Pregnancy Association and the FDA. However, pregnant women should avoid Panela Cheese made from unpasteurized milk. Unpasteurized milk may contain Listeria, a bacteria that can cause miscarriage or can cross the placenta and cause a potentially life-threatening infection to the baby.
