is food poisoning from frozen food common?

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.
