With reports of injury, over 263,000 liquid glitter iPhone cases are being recalled

MixBin Electronics is now recalling iPhone cases because the liquid inside the case can cause skin irritation, blisters or burns if it comes into contact with the skin. Roughly 263,000 cases are being recalled and there have been 24 reports worldwide of skin irritation or chemical burns, with 19 of those occurring in the United States.

Among the 24 reports, one case owner reported permanent scarring, while another reported burns and swelling on her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body, and hands. MixBin cases were sold on its own website, along with Amazon, Henri Bendel, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, and Victoria’s Secret stores in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Unfortunately, MixBin isn't the only one manufacturing these types of cases so it will be tough to tell whether the liquid glitter case you own has the potential to cause issues. The firm has a page with detailed pictures of the affected products and it is recommended to have a look to see if anything looks familiar. Naturally, if you are in possession of such a case, you will want to register with the website to receive a refund. If you have any questions in regards to the recall, you can also call 855-215-4935 for more details.
