The annual “Trouble in Toyland” report is out and it warns of toys that could potentially hurt your kids.
One of the biggest concerns is slime products.
Six popular slime toys contain what the report deems dangerously high levels of boron, a nonmetallic element used in detergents and rat poison.
There is no rule in the US about how much boron is allowed in products.
The US Public Interest Research Group Education Fund, which issued the toyland report, says there should be an investigation to see if limits should be set in the US.
Meanwhile a chemical expert says the type of boron in the slime has low toxicity.
He says a child would need to eat multiple containers before reaching toxic levels.
There’s no response yet from the slime makers.
