Re: cream cheese?
i've been told it's fine as long as it's pasturized. i've enjoyed a good amount of cream cheese on my toast throughout my pregnancy. yum

mayo is supposed to be okay as long as it's store bought mayo (shelf stable) & not homemade stuff. :)

Re: cream cheese?
thanks for your reply.

i googled it (the creamcheese) and didn't find any info saying it was bad as long as it said pasturized. I just wanted to see if any of you ladies thought different.

Re: cream cheese?
Pasteurization and proper food handling/storage is the key.

Re: cream cheese?
I asked the same question about cream cheese & sour cream to my Dr yesterday, and he said yes they are fine, as long as it is pasturized, enjoy!
