Excessive sodium content in Braunschweiger sausages may also lead to high blood pressure, and you definitely don’t what that to happen during your pregnancy! These sausages also have a high chance of housing bacteria such as listeria that can cause listeriosis, an infection that increases the chances of miscarriages and stillbirth.
