Pregnant women can eat deli meats, such as prossciutto, 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, deli meats 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.
