Safe, But...

Make sure it is made with pasteurized milk!

Non-imported Ricotta Cheese made with pasteurized milk is considered safe for pregnant women according to Livestrong and the American Pregnancy Association. However, pregnant women should avoid Ricotta 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.
