According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has determined that the DIY Shake Slime Toys do not meet the Canadian Toy Safety requirements related to Boric Acid content. Boric Acid can be toxic to children if licked or swallowed. Further, children are more sensitive to Boric Acid toxicity than are adults and high levels of Boric Acid ingestion may have long-term effects on a child’s mental and psychological development and their future reproductive health.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled DIY Shake Slime Children’s Toys, please do not use them nor let your child play with or near them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
