Do you think Cheese Ravioli is OK for us? (soft cheese filling)

After I ate some cheese ravioli today I remembered the doctor said not to eat soft cheese. I think the issue is lack pasteurization for soft cheeses ..... in the case of the ravioli however, it was boiled ... so that should be fine right?

 

What do you think. Yea or Nah to Ravioli?

  • I would eat it.

  • i'd cook it extra long and make sure it was hot enough and eat it like crazy.

  • I don't know for sure if pasteurization is the issue, which is why I posted.

  • If ravioli is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
  • Yes, I'm sure it's fine -- as long as the cheese is pasteurized. :)

    http://www.babycenter.com.au/pregnancy/nutrition/foodsafety/cheeseexpert/

     

    regnant women are advised not to eat uncooked: 

    soft, mould-ripened cheeses, such as Brie or Camembert 
    blue-veined cheeses, such as Danish Blue and Stilton 
    semi-soft cheeses, such as fetta and ricotta 

    These cheeses are moister and less acidic than other cheeses, providing a perfect environment for bacteria to grow. However, thorough cooking should kill any listeria, so it should be safe to eat these cheeses in cooked food. Before you eat it, though, make sure it has been properly cooked and is piping hot all the way through.

    First off, none of the cheese listed are in your ravioli.  Secondly, "soft cheeses" doesn't mean literally soft, like pureed, melted or shredded.  Those are "soft" but aren't what they're talking about.  Also, ANY pasteurized dairy is fine.  Even soft cheeses.

    Actually I think ricotta is common in ravioli, but I do agree it's safe to eat.

    Wait, you're right - I skipped that in the post.  I was focused on blue and feta.  But yes, all safe.

    FYI, Ricotta Cheese is in Ravioli. It isn't soft due to pureeing or melting, that is just the natural composition of the cheese.

     

    Also, the article state that because cheese like Ricotta are moister and less acidic, they are a good environment for bacteria ... this and not the pasteurization would be the issue. Based on that data, I don't see an issue with soft cheeses that are cooked to a temperature that would kill bacteria.

    I know but some people literally think soft is soft so I was just adding that to my opinion.  I've seen people wonder if cheese dip is ok because it's now "soft" or cheddar because if it's thin enough of shredded you can squish it between your fingers so people then think THAT qualifies as soft.

  • I live part time in France. Do you really think we can go 9m without cheese? They've already taken away our wine, foie gras, oysters, and champagne at Christmas/ New Year. They can't take away our cheese, too, without any concessions. Just make sure that it's pasteurized but it is very difficult to find unpasteurized cheese in the States. Even when you look.

  • I think it's been covered but as long as it's pasteurized, there shouldn't be an issue.

    I don't know what it was...oysters should sound slimy and gross and puke-worthy in first tri right?  Yet that's all I can think about...delicious, briny oysters.

  • I just think if there is no warning label for Pregnant women then it should be okay right?? I dont care for Cheese Ravioli but some meat filled sounds amazing!!!

    Dont consume yourself in what you cannot eat because if you follow every rule that some people say you should or shouldnt do then it will consume your life!

    Enjoy! :)
