Why would an apple make someone feel like they are going to throw up?

My girlfriend ate an apple and then shortly after she felt very sick in her stomach. She also felt like she had to go to the bathroom. Just wondering if there is something about an apple that would cause this. I am hoping that it could be a clue to some other possible food intolerance. Any thoughts?

    Food poisoning would cause this. I would suspect that some form of bacteria was growing on that fruit. I'm not saying it's E-coli because I'm not 100% without a test, but fruit can contain E-Coli if there was an outbreak in the region where it was grown. Outbreaks like that are not extremely common in the US because of our regulations. It could also be a coincidence and she is coming down with something.

    She probably ate something before the apple that made her stomach upset.
