Yes, it happens more than you think. usually when the control systems haven't made it into closed loop. Starting a flooded fuel injection engine is the same as starting a carburated one, hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over till it fires off then immediately release the gas pedal and let it idle for a little bit then drive. However if it continues to do this there could be something going haywire and then a live data scan would be necessary to locate the trouble.
