General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

White stool is a serious symptom. Stool gets white, because there is no bile secretion to it. Lack of bile secretion can be caused by bile ducts obstruction due to gallstones. If so, you should have also dark urine, upper right abdominal pain and nausea. So maybe your food poisoning were bile ducts obstruction.

I suggest you to visit your doctor and have abdominal ultrasound, blood work, liver tests and stool test.

Hope this will help.
