The only reason they would say subway is bad is because it's deli meat. But mybdr told me that I could eat deli meat as long as I knew it wasn't expired or if I toasted my sandwich

It's the possibility of getting listeriosis - bad stuff that grows on cold cuts - that's the problem. I ate at subway throughout my pregnancy and asked them to heat the meat in the microwave, to kill anything that might be growing.  They're really used to this request so don't be afraid to ask.  Enjoy!!

Lol i asked my midwife about this when i was preggo with my son...she said go for it, just have it toasted as it heats the meat to steaming, killing the bacteria. She said shed rather i eat out there than most other fast good. So i say go for it.

Eating cold lunch meat is like eating raw eggs, chances are you and baby will be ok, but why risk it? The cold meat can have bacteria that can hury baby bad.

They worry because on lunch meats There's always a chance of bacteria growing but if you have them toast it it will be fine I have had plenty of it during my pregnancy and I'm 35 weeks 1 day today
