Food poisoning takes at least 10-12 hours to fully digest in the stomach,but usually sometime within that time frame the natural stomach reaction of rejecting spoiled food starts in with the end result of either throwing up or having a bad case of the runs.As a former Chef on Carnival ships,every precaution is taken to ensure that under cooked food is not served, but things do slip by un noticed. The Quality Control is very high and I know from past experience if there had been a major problem or concern and brought to the attention of the Ships Steward it would have been addressed at that time. Please understand that by saying it was sent back to the Chef is not really fair as there are 10-15 different chef's on duty every shift.
