Spirit Mini Slime (12 count)
This recall involves Spirit Mini Slime (12 count). The product is a multi-pack of 12 different mini-slimes in various colours displaying the SKU 01343276.
The product presents a risk to children because it contains boric acid. Boric acid can be toxic to children if licked or swallowed. Children are more sensitive to boric acid toxicity than adults. High levels of boric acid ingestion may have long-term effects on a child's development and their future reproductive health.
The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits the manufacture, importation, advertisement or sale of a toy that does not meet the requirements set out in the Toys Regulations and other applicable regulations under the Act. The Toys Regulations state that toys must not contain boric acid or salts of boric acid where the acid or its salts can become accessible to a child during use.
