It's usually introduced by person to food contact, so maybe they could present enough doubt as to whether it was an employee or guest. Kind of a Longshot

I would think either direction would be tough to prove three years after the fact. Hopefully the caterer maintains good records and didn't throw them away.
Food poisoning can present as early as 20 minutes after a meal, depending on the type of infection.
