Brief Answer:
Probably food poisoning.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
This is most likely to be food poisoning and will pass in 24 hours. However, if your husband develops chest pain, tightness in his chest or difficulty breathing then these are not signs of food poisoning and may be heart related. In this case, you would need to take him to the emergency department. In the meantime, he should rest as much as possible until he feels well again.
I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
