Glittery iPhone cases recalled due to burn risk

The iPhone cases all contain glitter floating in liquid on the back of the plastic case, with several different designs sold by the fashion houses.

MixBin Electronics announced Tuesday that their liquid glitter iPhone cases were being pulled off the market, WTOP reports.

The cases, which are manufactured by MixBin Electronics, were made to the fit the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, and they were created to encase a clear liquid filled with shimmering glitter.

One user took to Facebook to show the burns she allegedly received from the cases.

All in all, 24 reports of skin irritation have been filed, with 19 from the US alone. The cases retailed for $15 to $65 from October 2015 through June 2017.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission handles cases when the public is put in danger from consumer products.

A BBC check found that some MixBin liquid glitter cases appeared to have been removed from sale on Amazon UK.

A 13-year-old British girl reported suffering chemical burns after her Victoria's Secret case leaked in May this year.

The recall is in effect in the US, Canada and Mexico.

MixBin lists all affected cases on its recall notice, but unless you specifically recognize the design, you might have difficulty identifying your case because some are pretty generic. For now, though, it probably makes more sense to just get a case with a bootleg Disney character on it or something. The full product descriptions are available on the commission's website.
