I just scoffed a Peperami without even thinking about the fact that it's salami... Does the fact that it's pasteurised and super processed make it safe, or should I not eat the rest of the 5 pack...?

Hi, i'm sure the risk is absolutely minuscule but i wouldnt eat the other ones. You've really made me fancy one now though : )

I'm sorry! I must not have had one since I was about 10 but I saw them there in tesco and had to have one. Slightly devastated I can't just devour the whole pack lol. Oh well, the dog will be pleased at least...

I'm sure you'll be fine. I would eat the rest but it's up to you. If you're really worried I think you can freeze them then eat them.

It's up to you weighing up the risks but I'm sure being processed etc you're highly unlikely to get ill. I've eaten loads of chorizo sausage rolls over the last few weeks (my favourite from the local bakery) and have only just realised I shouldn't be! But they're cooked so I'm thinking it'll be fine and the heat would kill any germs and I haven't been ill.

Uh oh - this is one of my cravings (10.5 weeks). I'm not stopping!!

I personally wouldn't worry, but it's completely your decision. Like you say, it's highly processed, packaged and I expect produced in the UK - our food laws are pretty strict when it comes to hygiene. A chorizo off the local market that's been swinging from a string all day - different story. I would crack on, myself smile

In the nicest possible way, don't be ridiculous! It's absolutely fine to eat unless your concern is if it will give you heartburn.

If you were asking is it safe to eat the salami from the backstreet Italian market in rural Italy I would perhaps suggest slightly more caution (and even then the risks are fairly small), but it's kind of like worrying that you have eaten supermarket cheddar just because there is a warning over unpasteurised rinded cheese grin

and it will probably give you heartburn .... But it will be worth it

I wouldn't because I had the worst heartburn ever... But i absolutely would have eaten hundreds of the things if I could have. I ate blue cheese and rare steak though (all washed down with a pint of gsviscon...)

I had a really bad craving for these for about 3 weeks!! Especially the red hot ones!

Pepperami is one of my favourite this in the world! I scoffed three of them yesterday! I don't think there's any harm in eating them as they are packaged up.
However, if a pepperami was sitting out on a deli counter then I wouldn't touch it!

Fine for you, but don't give it to the dog - it's pure salt!

PeachBellini123 Sat 12-Nov-16 11:32:49

Yeah echo not giving it to the dog - our family dog managed to sneak one (think it might have been a spicy one) and the result was not pleasant to clear up sad

I'd eat it. I geniunely have not heard anything bad from eating pepperami. Not the most healthy of foods but I know resistance is futile with pregnancy cravings!
