I read something recently-ish suggesting that this advice was based on just one study where they fed bucketloads of liver to pregnant rats. Will try to dig out a more reliable reference than "I vaguely remember reading this"...

Also, I know anecdote != data, but my mum said when she was pregnant with me she was advised to eat plenty of liver because of the iron...
