Yes: It's not uncommon. It's probably less likely then fresh foods to cause food poisoning, but frozen food can absolutely cause food poisoning. Freezing won't kill all bacteria. It will slow growth of bacteria, but if the food is already infected for example before it's frozen you'll get sick.

GI symptoms: Mostly you can get GI symptoms including nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps/pain as well as fever. Many different organisms can cause food poisoning and so there are other possible symptoms depending on the illness. Stay hydrated and if you have any worrisome symptoms, or you're not improving, see you doctor.
