Makes sense. DD was born in 1997 and I wasn't told about this. In any case I did avoid this stuff because of the nitrates (but now I don't since I buy the stuff without them). I just remember things like honey, soft cheeses and raw fish/undercooked meat (yuck). Frankly I wasn't really hungry much when I was pregnant, so it didn't really bother me.I think mid to late 90s is about right. I graduated as a dietitian in ‘95 and it wasn’t explicitly recommended when I was in school, but shortly after if I recall.
