No pumpkin shortage for Thanksgiving

There are no worries this year of a pumpkin shortage before Thanksgiving.

Bad weather the past three years lead to a canned pumpkin shortage and 95 percent of the pumpkins used in canned goods are produced in Morton, Illinois.

The situation got so bad in previous years that canned pumpkins are now selling on eBay at inflated prices. But there's no need to panic because there will be no pumpkin shortage this year.

If you want fresh pumpkin for your pies, the folks at Half Moon Bay told 7 On Your Side the harvest is late, but plentiful this year.
