How long will canned pumpkin last?

I thought I saw this on here not too long ago, but, I couldn't find it.
I have 2 cans from last year and was wondering if they would still be good? I'm assuming they will be.

I think they will be fine, TeeGee. Remember when I made those pumpkin flans? Used canned pumpkin that had been in the cupboard for at least a year.

Constance, crack 'em open and take a whiff! Five years is most likely pushing it but that stuff does seem to last forever!

Will do. I always thought that about evaporated milk, too, but I found a can in my basement a while back that "clunked" when shaken.

Constance! I'm sorry, I've been in a joking mood. Toss the old cans of pumpkin. I don't want you or anyone else to get sick.

If the cans are not bulging they should be safe.
