If you become too concerned about purchasing pre-made salsa and guacamole...you can make them at home yourself. Neither one is too difficult to make.
I haven't checked out the recipes here...but food network and allrecipes have pretty much anything you want to find.

The difference is the pregnancy. A pregnant women has a somewhat lower immune system and may be more susceptible to a food borne illness.
And of course there is the damage and danger to the baby as well.
That is why listeria is a topic that all pregnant women need to be aware of, regarding soft cheeses, deli meat, etc.

Well I've already had 1 m/c in the second trimester and I'm trying to do everything I can to eat "right"... are store made items like salsa or guacamole potentially dangerous? I mean does it go back to them washing their hands and the vegetables etc? Should someone who is pregnant play it safe and stay away? But if so, what is the difference then going out to eat during pregnancy?

They are probably safe, we sure hope that stores are following safe food handling practices. Becky

yes, The canned chicken is safe to eat. If you buy the rotisserie chicken make sure you eat the hot bird within 2 hours, or get it in the refrigerator. Use food safety practices. If you need more on this, just let me know. Becky, Your BF dietitian
