Food Poisoning

Is it possible for some people to get food poisoning and others that have eaten the same not? Not sure which we have got but the ones that got sick, got sick one after the other in a matter of hours after eating the contaminted food. Not sure if so many of you get so quickly after each other with a tummy bug. Could you advise on this?

It is most probably due to food poisoning and not a stomach bug. Food poisoning symptoms will start withing two to twelve hours after ingesting the toxin. A stomach bug usually has an incubation period of a couple of days before symptoms will start.
