Can food poisoning cause infertility ?

User Profile
My girlfriend and I would like to get married and have children. She's worried, however, that a bad bout with food poisoning a few years ago somehow made her unable to have children. Can there be any truth in this? Can a bout with food poisoning lead to infertility in any way?
