How long is it safe to keep on eating defrosted meat for and is it safe to reheat it?

I'm being extra cautious as I'm pregnant..

Any help gratefully recieved.

I would guess that as long as you reheat it THOROUGHLY then eating it again today is fine - but not again tomorrow.

I think red meat is safer generally than reheated chicken - but someone please contradict me if I'm wrong here! (And randomly from my working-in-a-pub student days I remember that defrosted cooked rice is one of the worst things of all for nasty bugs!)

I would reheat it once but not again, and any leftovers after that would be thrown out.

Not sure if that's what you're supposed to do however!

I would. Only reheat the amount you intend to eat though.
