Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain Toysmith branded Slime Sucker Toys, as follows:

  • This recall involves certain Toysmith branded Slime Sucker Toys. Each of the recalled Toys has a purple or blue head figure with green slime and was sold with an Item number of 20057 or a UPC 085761220225

According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has determined that the Toysmith branded Slime Suckers 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 Toysmith branded Slime Sucker 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 or safely dispose of the product in your household trash.
