This toy is a “chemical risk” to children.

The CCPC has recalled a toy that was sold to 30,000 people in Ireland after it was found to be a “chemical risk” to children.

They said, “the product does not meet the legal safety requirements.”

The toy affected is the Skumvoks light clay mix toy which has been sold in Flying Tiger stores across Ireland since February 2018.

Worryingly, the Boron in the toy can result in skin irritation, diarrhea, or vomiting.

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission issued a recall notice for the toy on Friday and said there can be “long-term impacts on children’s health” because of it.

A representative also said: “The risk presented by the product is chemical. The product contains increased levels of boron and the exposure to increased levels of boron may result in skin irritation, diarrhea, or vomiting.”

This is worrying parents all around the country.

They’re being asked to stop their child from playing with the products immediately and return it to any Flying Tiger Copenhagen store for a full refund.

They have model numbers 3036547 and 3014809, and the barcode 0200030148097.
