Glittery iPhone Cases Recalled Because Of Chemical Burns
You know those cute iPhone cases that have glitter suspended in liquid? They're so shiny and pretty, and apparently, they can burn your skin because they leak.
Almost 300,000 iPhone cases that have the glittery liquid have been recalled because of about 30 reported cases worldwide of them leaking onto people and causing skin irritation and chemical burns. The cases were sold for the iPhone 6, 6s, and 7. People bought them on Amazon, at really nice places like Henri Bendel, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, Victoria's Secret and onlinen at GetMixBin.com.
Nineteen cases of chemical burns from the cases have been reported in the United States. The remainder of the reports of burns have come from other countries.
The cases can crack or breakdown, and one case has lead to permanent scarring from the chemicals inside. Another woman said her leg, face, neck, upper body, and hands all swelled and were burned because of the goo inside.
