especially important for you and your unborn child.
That is why the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s

In addition to this guide, we strongly encourage
you to check with your obstetrician, or health care

your pregnancy. We also encourage you to read this
brochure to learn how you can help protect yourself
and your unborn child from foodborne illness.
