i think it's the emetic form of B.cereus caused by eating reheated rice...b/c the diarrheal form is longer in duration and causes more time for it to present itself.

yah def. B. Cereus. Only Staph. Aureus and B. Cereus preformed toxin can cause GI distress that rapidly, and Staph. Aureus isnt an answer choice
