Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products sold with a batch/lot designation of BU1710-899 and an EAN/barcode of 6257217108997. This recall alert was submitted by Croatia to the EU Safety Gateway under alert number A12/00797/22.

These Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products were marketed, sold and delivered as goopy, viscous plastic blob toys for children and were packaged in small red colored plastic “drums” with white stylized text identifying the products.

No manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The hazards reported in the recalled Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products allow the migration of the element Boron from the Toy at levels deemed too high. In this case, the measured value is up to 1004 mg/kg. Ingestion or dermal contact with an excessive quantity of Boron may harm the health of children by damaging their reproductive system.

As a consequence, utilizing this product in a reasonable manner expected with their intended design and anticipated use, a child playing with this Toy or adult caregiver cleaning up the play area can suffer serious injury and/or life-changing health consequences.

Proposed Remedy:
Due to these defects, the recalled Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products reportedly do not comply with the health and safety requirements of Toy Safety Directive nor with the European standard EN 71-3.

Consequently, a ban on the marketing of these recalled Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products from the European marketplace has been ordered. You should not market, sell or use these recalled Children’s Toy products.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Barrel-o-Slime branded Toy Slime products, please do not use them nor allow your child to plat with or near them. Instead, kindly return the Toys to the store or online outlet where you purchased them for a refund.

If you have a medical emergency, please contact 1-1-2, your closest hospital or emergency centre equipped to properly treat Anaphylaxis, respiratory impairment and/or cardiac injury.

Please note: 1-1-2 (also written as “112”) is the universal European emergency number you can dial free of charge from fixed and mobile phones anywhere in the EU. It will connect you to the local emergency services including police, ambulance, fire brigade. National emergency numbers are still in use too, alongside 1-1-2. but 1-1-2 is the only number you can use to access the emergency services in all EU countries.
