Sure: Anything with red dyes or naturally red can cause redness in your stool until all of the material passes through your intestines. How long it takes depends on the transit time of your particular body. I would think in most cases 1-3 days.

It can: Should not be over 12-24hrs. Medications and other foods can do it too, as can blood. The blood that comes from the stomach or upper small intestinal area will show ur stool to be black. If it is from lower shall intestine or parts of large intestine can be maroon looking. Bright red blood is from sigmoid colon, rectum or hemorrhoids.
