deli meat

Is it okay to eat deli meat if it says fully cooked on the package

All deli meat is fully cooked.  I've heard it should be heated to steaming before eating it just in case the lysteria bacteria is on it.  My dr told me that packaged meat is safe. The one to watch out for is the one cut by the deli department.

I still pop mine into the microwave for 10 second or so. Just to be safe.

Heat it up for 30 seconds before you eat it. Even the packaged stuff has a slight risk of listeria, and its a better-safe-than-sorry kind of thing.
