Egg nog during pregnancy
It is safe to drink egg nog during pregnancy only if you know its been made with pasteurized egg and without alcohol. Home-made egg nog is made with eggs that are raw, unpasteurized or both. These are not safe for pregnant women because they can carry disease causing organisms such as Salmonella bacteria. Commercially made ones sold in stores are made with pasteurized eggs and is safer.
Salmonella can cause food poisoning and can be fatal in rare cases. Getting sick from Salmonella during pregnancy can cause vomiting, high fever, diarrhea and dehydration which can result in miscarriage or preterm labor.
