<span>So my family will be having ham today and its a fully cooked, smoked spiral ham that has to be thrown in the oven for about 30 mins. before serving....would this be a "no-no" to eat b/c of listeria issues or would it be fine to eat? I'm thinking that it might not be very safe and if thats the case then I will just stick to the turkey!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> Thanks.</span>

I think cooking until steaming hot is the recommended prevention for listeria in deli style meats. I don't know if ham would be as much of a concern as deli meats but I would think heating it up would be fine. I wouldn't hesitate to have some.

If you don't think it's hot enough, microwave a piece! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

As long as it is fully cooked through and hot I'd also go for it. If I didn't think it seemed hot enough I'd throw my pieces in the microwave to get it really hot.

<span>I just found out that the ham actually cooks a total of 60 minutes at like 350 degrees. Maybe I will have some... Just all of this "dont eat this and dont eat that" during pregnancy is sometimes overwhelming. Ugh...</span>
