Recall phone case liquid glitter iPhone 112x210 iPhone Cases Recalled Due to Skin Irritation, BurnsConsumers looking to accessorize their iPhones should be aware that New Jersey-based MixBin Electronics LLC, has recalled approximately 263,000 of its Liquid Glitter iPhone cases after customers reported the cases caused skin irritation and chemical burns, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

There have been 24 reports of skin irritation and chemical burns, including 19 injuries in the U.S. CNN reports that the injuries are a result of the liquid substance contained in the cases leaking out and coming into contact users’ skin. The liquid can leak out if the case cracks or breaks. One consumer has been permanently scarred from a chemical burn. Another customer reported swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands, in addition to chemical burns.

The cases were designed to fit the iPhone 6, 6S and 7. They were sold online and in stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico from October 2015 through June 2017. Sellers of the cases include Amazon, Henri Bendel, MixBin, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch and Victoria’s Secret.
