275,000 Liquid-Filled iPhone Cases Recalled After Reports of Chemical Burns


Nearly 275,000 MixBin Electrics iPhone cases have been recalled after reports that the liquid used to suspend glitter in the cases can leak, causing skin irritation, and chemical burns.

Consumer Reports Permanent Scarring from Defect Case

According to CNN, MixBin Electronics has received 24 reports of skin irritation and chemical burns with 19 of those reports coming from the United States.

Reports indicate that the cases are prone to cracks and breaks which can cause the liquid inside to leak out and come into contact with people’s skin. In one incident, a consumer reported permanent scarring due to chemical burns, and another consumer reported swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body, and hands.

The defective cases were designed for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 7 devices and were sold through Amazon, Henry Bendel, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, Victoria Secret, and GetMixBin.com between October 2015 and June 2017.
