In brief: Staph food poisoning

Staph releases toxins into the GI tract.
These toxins are typically formed on food that has languished in a buffet or picnic or at room temperature. The toxins cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The consequences are dehydration, potassium loss, and acid-base disturbance. Pain and cramping are usual. Dehydration and potassium loss can be major.
