My PA son helped carve pumpkins last year and we did not have any issues with the seeds. He did not eat them though, but there was plenty of skin contact.

my PA son eats them without a problem. They're not legumes at all. I wouldn't buy the commercial ones for fear of contamination, but homemade? sure.

My son has eaten home processed pumpkin seeds with no problem but that would be an individual kind of thing. He was never tested but he's had pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread and did fine.

My DS eats them as well with no problems. He's never had any issues with any seeds but we haven't tested for them either.

Funny you mention this because my DS's teacher said last week that she wanted to carve pumpkins and roast the seeds. I'm not sure because he's never had them that I can remember, but I make pumpkin cake alot and he eats it no problem.
