Eggs and dairy products can also cause allergic reactions in some people.

It is quite uncommon to eat bad pumpkin pie due to its distinctive smell and taste.

However, if you do, you should drink plenty of fluids and seek medical attention if your symptoms are severe or last more than 24 hours.

To avoid accidental eating of bad pumpkin pie, you should always check the expiration date of the ingredients and the pie itself.

You should also store the pie in the refrigerator or freezer and discard it after 3 to 4 days.

You should also avoid eating pumpkin pie that has been left out at room temperature for more than 2 hours, as this can increase the risk of bacterial growth.

Finally, remember, pumpkin pie is a delicious treat that can be enjoyed safely if you follow proper food safety guidelines.
