    C. Foodborne illness

    Explanation:

    Foodborne illness, also known as food poisoning, is an illness caused by eating food contaminated by bacteria, viruses or parasites, spoiled, or poisonous food (mushrooms, certain species of beans). The most common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Ptomaine poisoning is a term for food poisoning that is no longer used, as it has been proven that poisoning is not caused by the ingestion of ptomaines (foul-smelling nitrogenous substances produced by bacteria during decomposition of animal or plant protein).
