Recall Alert: Your Glittery iPhone Case Could Give You a Chemical Burn
When's the last time you bought a new case for your iPhone? It can be a daunting task; fun, but daunting.
There you stand, looking at a sea of colored plastic that plasters an entire wall at the Verizon store; you feel like a kid in candy store. But after 20 minutes, you still can't decide. You want something that's functional, yet affordable, and it really needs to scream "this is me."
That's what's so fun about picking an iPhone case, you get to pick something that really speaks to your personality and displays who you are. The one thing you don't want to put on display is the chemical burn that you got from that cute, glittery case you just bought.
According to USA Today, MixBin is recalling several liquid glitter iPhone cases that were sold through Victoria Secret, Amazon and Nordstrom Rack after getting reports that they were causing skin irritation and chemical burns.
Are you asking how this is even possible? It happens if the case breaks and the liquid comes in contact with your skin. Ouch.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says 263,000 cases for the iPhone 6, 6S and 7 are affected.
MixBin is offering refunds on the cases and you can contact them toll-free at 855-215-4935 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at https://phonecaserecall.expertinquiry.com/ or www.getmixbin.com for more information.
