iPhone cases with liquid glitter recalled after causing skin irritation, burns

MixBin Electronics recalled some of their iPhone cases Tuesday after consumers reported skin irritation and burns caused by the liquid glitter in the cases.

The cases being recalled are those with liquid glitter floating inside the plastic. The liquid and glitter can leak out of the case, causing burns and skin irritation, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

CPSC said there have been 24 reports of skin irritation or chemical burns worldwide, and 19 of those were in the United States. One consumer has permanent scarring from a chemical burn and another reported chemical burns and swelling on her face, neck, chest, upper body, hands, and legs.

MixBin cases were sold at Amazon, Henri Bendel, MixBin, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, and Victoria Secret stores all over the U.S. and online from October 2015 to June 2017. They were priced anywhere between $15 and $65.

Consumers should stop using the cases immediately and contact MixBin Electronics for a refund, CPSC said.
