Should resolve: After a food poisoning episode, some mucousy discharge may be normal, and should resolve in time as the healing process occurs.

Mucus colitis: Mucus colitis may be an aftermath of food poisoning or viral intestinal infection. It also occurs in irritable bowel syndrome. If symptoms persist a gastroenterologist is best to evaluate and advise you. If you don't have a history of ibs your bowels should return to normal soon, however. It is not unusual to get constipation for a short time after diarrhea.
