Poop accidents with my 5 1/2 year old

My 5 1/2 year old son has been potty trained since just before he turned 3.  He did great for a while, but for past year a half, has been having poop accidents off and on.  He'll do great for a few weeks, and then he'll have accidents for a few days to a week and then it stops again.  He goes poop regularly, usually once a day, sometimes twice.  So I don't think he is constipated.  He claims that he doesn't even know that he has had an accident and didn't feel it come out.  I find it hard to believe, but have tried to give him the benefit of the doubt.  Anyone else have a similar issue or any suggestions on how to resolve it?

 I had this issue when my dd was 3 yo.  She's now almost 6yo.  So I don't have much to really help but just know where you are coming from.  She finally just stopped one day.  Nothing seemed to work to make her stop so I gave up and she finally quit.  Now she just pees at night time.  Still haven't gotten her to quit doing that.
