Apparently, because a phone case is sparkly and filled with glitter, it doens’t mean it’s safe. MixBin, a case manufacturer who sells its product in a variety of retail stores, is recalling more than 200,000 cases which have been reported to cause burns and swelling to a recorded 24 users. The cases were made for the iPhone 7, 6S, and 6 and were available on the company’s website, at Amazon, Victoria’s Secret, Nordstrom Rack, and Tory Burch.
According to the company, the cases are being recalled “due to the risk of skin irritation, blisters or burns if the liquid contained in the phone case leaks comes into contact with the skin due to breakage or cracking of the case.” I literally had no idea whatever that liquid inside cases like this was, let alone have knowledge that it could harm you in such serious ways. I should probably stop trying to buy one for my mom now, right?
If your case looks like one of the following, you better return it. MixBin says you can also look at the accessorie’s original packaging to look for the model number and UPC, but did you really keep the box for your phone case?
