Liquid-Filled iPhone Cases Recalled After Reports of Chemical Burns

Recall announced for liquid iPhone cases made by MixBin Electronics.

Nearly 275,000 iPhone cases that contain glitter suspended in liquid are being recalled after reports of leakage that caused burns and skin irritation.

MixBin Electronics sold the cases designed for iPhone 6, 6s and 7 through Amazon, Henri Bendel, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, Victoria’s Secret and GetMixBin.com.

The company announced the recall after 24 reports worldwide of skin irritation or chemical burns. Nineteen of the reports came from the United States, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

If the case cracks or breaks, the liquid can leak out and come into contact with people’s skin, MixBin said in a statement. One consumer reported permanent scarring from a chemical burn, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Another consumer reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands, the commission said.

The plastic cases were made in China.

Customers should immediately stop using the recalled cases and contact MixBin for a refund, according to the commission’s report.

You can check if your phone case is affected at the company’s website.

    Why do we buy anything from China. They are corrupt and anti-American. They put all sorts of toxins in their products for us to consume.

      Well that’s because an alarming amount of U.S companies have factories in China. It’s cheap – both to produce and hire. Personally, I’d prefer all-American (made in the U.S type stuff) companies for the products we buy. But that probably won’t happen considering the current state of our natural resources. We use so much of it as is. We pretty much have no other choice but to move our companies to China.
