just wondering if I can eat salami - it's pre-wrapped from a supermarket (not in slices from a deli counter).
Any advice appreciated.

I was told a big no no for salami , parma ham , Dried meat as it is in fact raw meat . Was also told to have steak cooked and not rare or med rare. No pate either.

just read the Food Standards Agency guidelines...and seen something really interesting about shellfish - i've been told time and time again, no shellfish under any circumstances...and apparantly you can??

I know but apparently only applies to raw/cold shell-fish. Ever since I found out I have been eating lots of king-prawn stir-fries yum-yum!

I've been eating it, and Parma Ham, I haven't read anything that says you shouldn't if it's pre-packaged. I have been avoiding deli counters though.
