    I wouldn't think haggis is safe, just for the vit a content in it. Its like pate, not allowed that cuz of the vit a content x

    Not sure if it is recommended but I had haggis the other day. I figured its not something that I have regularly so eating it as a one off wasn't going to do much harm! Enjoy! x

    The liver content in haggis (& there fore the vit a) is actually relatively low. It's mostly oats etc thats in it. As long as your not eating it every night it's fine.

    The main reason for pate on the other hand is the listeria bacteria in the manufacturing process. xxx

    Oh that's a pity - its delicious (but then I'm Scottish so a wee bit biased) and perfectly fine to eat when pregnant!x

    Well, I didn't like haggis before I got pregnant, and with Burns night being this week and haggis everywhere it has well and truly put me off for life :sick: xx
