Please see that if any of following symptoms are there. Also Blood iron levels need to be checked.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain are the hallmark of iron poisoning and usually develop within 30 min-6 hr after ingestion. Hematemesis and bloody diarrhea may develop in more serious poisonings. The gastrointestinal signs may subside over 6-12 hr; however, careful observation is warranted
