Liquid Glitter iPhone cases being recalled

A company that manufactures glitter phone cases, MixBin Electronics, has recalled about 263,000 of their “liquid glitter iPhone cases” on Tuesday, according to a US Consumer Product Safety Commission release.

 

This includes all cases for iPhone 6, 6s, and 7 sold from October 2015 to June this year. Retailers of the cases include Amazon, Henri Bendel, MixBin itself, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, and Victoria’s Secret, and ranged in price from $15 to $65.

 

The recall is occurring because of the scary risk and worldwide reports of burns.

 

According to a statement from the company:

 

“There have been 24 reports worldwide of skin irritation or chemical burns, including 19 in the U.S… one consumer reported permanent scarring from a chemical burn and another consumer reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands.”

 

MixBin has advised customers “should immediately stop using” the cases and contact the company for a full refund.To see the full list of the recalled MixBin Electronics cases, including model numbers, UPC codes, and descriptions, check out the notice on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
