My farm bought apple cider is still fermenting? Safe??

jen223 | Oct 21, 201512:39 PM     6

I love apple cider. I am also pregnant. I bought apple cider from a farm, and the container had a label (with a different farm's name) that said it was flash pasteurized. I figured this means it's safe for my consumption.

I've been realizing that every time I open the container, I hear a pop of air coming out and realized that the container itself was bulging.

Could my apple cider still be fermenting? I don't know much about fermentation but would assume the flash pasteurization would've killed everything that could ferment.

Should I stop drinking it? Is it too late?? I'm paranoid and pregnant!
