BETHESDA, Md. (TND) — There are three weeks to go until Halloween and there’s a major recall involving candy.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning about Slime Licker Sour Rolling Liquid Candy, 70 million of them.

The problem is, there’s a plastic bottle with a rolling ball that holds a sour liquid candy, and that rolling ball can detach from the container into a child’s mouth, posing a choking hazard.

The company has gotten two reports of the rolling applicator ball detaching from the container. Luckily, no injuries have been reported.

The Slime Licker Sour Rolling Liquid Candy was sold in two-ounce and three-ounce containers, in stores such as Walmart and Five Below, from 2015 through July, for between $2 and $4.

They came in four flavors: blue (Blue Razz), red (Strawberry), green (Sour Apple) and pink (Black Cherry).

The labels on the containers say “TOXIC WASTE” brand or “MEGA TOXIC WASTE” brand, and “SLIME LICKER Sour Rolling Liquid Candy.”

The UPC code for Black Cherry and Sour Apple is 8-50034-59720-1, and there are four codes for Blue Razz and Strawberry: 8-98940-00101-6, 8-98940-00191-7, 8-98940-00169-6, and 0-60631-91829-7.
