Tobar instigates swift withdrawal of slime after boron test results

Published on: 28th June 2019

The company has pulled its entire range of Magic Poo from sales after a single batch was found to contain too much boron. 

Tobar has moved quickly to ensure the safety of consumers after tests revealed that a batch of one of its slime products contained to much boron, by removing its entire range from sale. Retailers including Amazon, Claire’s Accessories and Hawkins Bazaar have removed the bright pink Unicorn Magic Poo and brown Magic Poo products.

The comprehensive recall means those particular products will no longer be sent to stores, and any already on the shelves will be removed from sale.

A spokesperson for Tobar said: “Following a deviation from the formula in the manufacturing factory, a batch of the product did not meet the EU requirement for boron. After one batch of the product was found to be non-compliant, Tobar instigated the withdrawal of all the products from sale, not just the affected batch. We liaised with our trading standards partners and they were happy for us to take this pro-active approach.”
