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. Http://www. Webmd. Com/food-recipes/food-poisoning/news/20100618/frozen-meals-linked-to-salmonella-outbreak 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.
Food poisoning: Use good hygiene, avoid handling of food by infected people, avoid use of unpasteurized milk, ensure that drinking water is clean. Many foods should not sit out at room temperatures for very long prior to consumption.
Diarrhea: FP will have violent emesis and diarrhea, and will last a short period, perhaps 6-10 hrs. Appendicitis does not include diarrhea, the mild nausea and occasional vomiting can be seen. Usually early pain around umbilicus, which then moves to Right lower quadrant. An easy difference to spot. Good luck.
