Pregnant and filet americain

  1. Filet americain is a commonly eaten type of sandwich spread. However, it is unwise to eat during pregnancy as it is made from raw beef. Pregnant women run the risk of contracting an infectious disease with potentially dangerous consequences for the baby. Fortunately, for those who cannot afford filet americain during pregnancy, there are safe alternative recipes.

Filet americain or préparé

  1. Filet americain is a sandwich spread made from raw ground beef, often mixed with herbs, Worcestershire sauce and mayonnaise. In Belgium, filet americain often refers to tartare. The Belgian name for a product similar to the Dutch filet americain is préparé. Filet americain is often served on bread or toast with slices of boiled egg or chunks of onion. But pesto, old cheese, capers or peppercorns also combine well with filet americain.

Filet americain during pregnancy

  1. Because filet americain contains raw beef, it is not recommended for pregnant women. Raw beef can be infected with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii or the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. Both can be dangerous to the unborn baby during pregnancy.

Toxoplasmosis

  1. Toxoplasma gondii can cause toxoplasmosis which can lead to birth defects or miscarriage during pregnancy. Congenital abnormalities do not have to be immediately visible, but can only become apparent at a later age. Healthy people often notice little of an infection with Toxoplasma, but the consequences for pregnant women can be enormous.

Listeriosis

  1. Listeriosis, caused by Listeria monocytogenes, can lead to inflammation of the uterus, miscarriage or stillbirth. Pregnant women in particular are more prone to listeriosis because of their lower resistance. Listeria often occurs in raw products that can be kept in the refrigerator for some time. Processed, raw food in particular has a relatively high risk of contamination. In the past there have been incidents where Listeria has been found in filet americain. For example, in March 2016 filet americain was recalled from Albert Heijn due to a Listeria contamination. Listeria, like Toxoplasma, can be prevented by heating products well beforehand. Most people, however, will not like heated filet americain.

Filet americain and breastfeeding

  1. Filet americain may be eaten during breastfeeding. This is because the infections cannot be passed on to the baby through breast milk. Immediately after delivery, the mother's resistance is often somewhat lower, which can make you more susceptible to infections. Finally, you should be careful to wash your hands thoroughly after eating to minimize the risk of contamination of your baby through your hands.
