iPhone Case Recall Issued For Liquid, Glitter Filled Products Following Reports of Burns, Skin Irritation
More than 260,000 liquid and glitter filled iPhone cases have been recalled, following dozens of reports involving problems where the liquid leaked from the cases, causing skin irritations and chemical burns.
The Liquid Glitter iPhone case recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on August 1, impacting more than quarter-million cases distributed throughout the United States.
The recall involves iPhone 6, 6s and 7 model phone cases, which contain a liquid gel with glitter. Officials initiated the recall due to the potential for the liquid gel to seep out of the cases and come in contact with user’s skin, which may cause mild to severe irritation or chemical burns that could result in permanent injuries.
