I think you have to eat like 7 whole pineapples to cause any harm at all.

no, fresh. I got from king soopers it comes pre-cut and washed in tubs.

I've been eating a lot of pineapple, so I hope not. I think you'd have to eat a ton of it for it do anything.

Supposedly it can induce labor if you eat enough so I would guess there is a risk

Kinda like you can have a cocaine overdose on like 20 lbs of dark chocolate.... It's not going to happen.

I eat pineapple. Ate quite a bit of it after I first found out I was pregnant. I couldn't eat a lot of cooked food(hot food didn't sit well on my stomach), so I ate fresh fruits and veggies all the time. I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with a very healthy baby boy.

Also it's said you have to eat the core too for it to induce labor.
