What pregnant women should avoid, according to food-poisoning expert
Pregnant people need to avoid certain foods.
Food-poisoning outbreaks seem to be sweeping the United States this year. And, with news of outbreaks on the rise, expectant mothers need to be especially careful.
While foodborne illnesses are rarely pleasant, certain types can hit pregnant people and newborns especially hard. According to food-poisoning expert Bill Marler, listeria should be a top concern for any expectant mother.
"Listeria illnesses in moms pass to the baby in uterus and can kill or damage the baby," Marler, who is an attorney specializing in foodborne-illness cases, told Business Insider.
More than 200 people died in a listeria outbreak stemming from a meat-production plant in Polokwane, South Africa, earlier this year. Newborns were the most likely to be impacted by the outbreak, with 91 babies under the age of 28 days old dying as a result of listeriosis.
To reduce the risk of foodborne illness, pregnant women should avoid eating certain foods, according to Marler.
