Tests of children’s toy slimes have found almost half failed EU safety limits for the presence of a potentially harmful chemical.

Which? tested 13 products from a range of high street and online retailers and found five failed the EU safety standard limit for boron in toys, while another product classified as a putty also failed.

Boron is found in borax, a common ingredient in slime that helps to create its stickiness. The EU safety limit is 300mg/kg for slime and 1200mg/kg for putty.

I Call True: This is making the news across most media outlets, what i wonder is how this is even allowed in the UK if the levels of toxicity are so high?
An outright ban is whats needed or as an absolute minimum an urgent recall on ALL products.
