The recalled iPhone cases were sold at Victoria’s Secret, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, Henri Bendel, and MixBin stores nationwide.
At least 24 people worldwide — including 19 people in the United States — have reported skin irritation or chemical burns after the liquid-filled glitter iPhone cases broke open and the liquid leaked out.
Some of the injuries were extensive or resulted in permanent scarring, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC):
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 would not say what chemical is causing the burns, but it is described on Amazon.com as “safe food grade snow globe liquid.”
The recall involves 263,000 MixBin liquid glitter mobile phone cases for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 7. They were sold for $15 to $65 online and in stores nationwide between October 2015 through June 2017.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled iPhone cases and contact MixBin Electronics for a full refund. Customers must register for a refund and upload a picture of the case. For more information, visit http://phonecaserecall.expertinquiry.com or call 855-215-4935.
