Is it okay to eat a semi-soft cheese like Muenster during pregnancy

Yes, it is perfectly fine to eat Muenster cheese during pregnancy as long it is made from pasteurized milk. Usually, store-bought cheeses are made using pasteurized milk and are safe to consume during pregnancy. But in some farmer’s markets and local stores, soft cheeses are made using raw milk. These soft and semi-soft cheeses may contain harmful bacteria like listeria and E.coli. As pregnant women are highly susceptible to such infections, it is recommended that you consult a doctor before eating soft cheeses made with unpasteurized milk.
