Hi girls, Quick question for you.. about to have a lunch thingy at work and I had a quick look at it!! There is Pate (chicken liver) on the crackers etc. I know this is not allowed now but can someone tell me why? Not sure why I can't eat it when it looks so delicious!! Thanks

It's because there's a chance it might be listeria-contaminated. The risk of getting listeriosis is usually small, but best avoided nonetheless.
