I had chicken, corn and rice for dinner last night.
For a night time snack I had some hot chettos. Would this cause it?
Rest of the stool was brown.
No pain in the stomach region.

Thank you for the information.

When the rest of the stool color is brown & you do not have any other symptom, it can be that the corn got its color from any food.

Color of food can make the change.

But you need to watch it.

If the color continues to be red, you need to consult doctor for stool analysis to rule out blood.

I hope this information helps.
