    The Intermarché supermarket chain launched a recall on Friday, October 15 of batches of derinded, defatted and nitrite-free superior cooked ham of the Madrange brand, in batches of three slices.

Symptoms usually appear within 12 to 72 hours after food ingestion, but may vary and develop earlier or later. The signs are: blurred vision, droopy eyelids, speech disturbances, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, muscle weakness, constipation, vomiting, diarrhoea. Symptoms may be more severe in older people and young children.
