Is it safe to eat cheese fondue while pregnant?

Any cheese cooked is perfectly safe to eat whilst pregnant, regardless if its pasteurised or not. Hard unpasteurised cheese is safe to eat uncooked too, its got nothing to do with if its unpasteurised or not the question is if its soft or not. The bacteria grows in the moisture of the cheese, when you take it home its the other bugs in your unwashed salad etc that uses the cheese as a playground to grow and fester. Medical staff are ill advised and if in doubt you should go to Waitrose and speak to the cheese specialists who are qualified within the cheese industry to advise you better. so to sum it up you shouldn't eat soft cheese pasteurised or not but hard its completely safe.
