Are smoked oysters safe to eat when pregnant?? Just wondering because usually every Christmas my family has them.

If not "COOK" then my guess is "NO"

Yes, as long as they aren't raw. You can have them smoked, grilled, steamed, scalded, fried,etc,etc.. They actually have a ton on iron in them - very good for you.

i'm not completely sure about this, but i don't think smoked is actually cooked. and if they're not cooked they can be really bad for you. i'd stay away from them unless you know they're VERY well done.

Smoked is cooked fully, its just a different way to cook oysters. Just like you can smoke ribs or grill them - either way they are still cooked.

Thanks all for your input!

I think I would stay away from oysters all together while pregnant... Personally, I love them but stay away from them even not pregnant. They carry a lot of bacteria and harmful stuff.

I've been eating smoked oysters...I have not experienced anything bad.
