USDA Food Saftey Video for Pregnant Women














A very important message to women who are pregnant. Listeria monocytogenes is very dangerous for anyone who is immunocompromised and it is one of few bacterial pathogens that can cross the fetal-placenta barrier and infect the fetus, usually resulting in fetal death. The USDA produced this video to explain the dangers of L. monocytogenes and what women can do to protect themselves and their unborn babies. One important point is that pregnant women should avoid any food that may contain raw milk which can harbor this and many other potentially deadly pathogenic microorganisms.
