    Supermarket refuses to sell pregnant woman cheese
    Pregnant Janet Lehain has criticised supermarket staff who refused to sell her a block of Cheddar cheese because it was too ''dangerous''.

    Ms Lehain, from Bedford, had to lie and promise she would not eat the cheese herself before the Sainsbury's deli counter worker allowed her to buy it

    only soft cheeses.. lol, nothing to do with man cheese

    "Cheese is an important source of protein and calcium for pregnant women but certain kinds do need to be avoided. This is because some cheeses are more inclined to allow growth of bacteria, such as listeria, which can harm your unborn child.

    Pregnant women are advised not to eat:

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

    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.

    In healthy adults, infection with listeria can cause a short-lived flu-like illness. Pregnant women, however, can be hit harder by listeria, for the same reason you are more susceptible to everything during pregnancy: your immune system isn't working as well. "

    jobsworthy

    if they were that concerned about their ''customers'' - and this goes for any supermarket -
    why - when there is a product recall - especially regards to food - do they put notices on a wall at the back of customer services or the like
    - they should put them by the checkous etc

    sure, doctors always advice women not to eat blue cheese when they are pregnant

    the pregnant woman probably just got her knickers in a twist because of all the hormons

    I agree...........it should be made more visible.

    Although one of our 2 Sainsbury's is quite good as it has a big notice board as you go in with all stuff like this posted on it. The other one though probably puts it in the toilet. :lol:

    After getting her cheese she should have said "thanks for the cheese, now can you direct me to the tobacco counter and alcohol isle?"
