What’s the Problem?
August 3, 2017 - MixBin Electronics, the New Jersey firm that manufactured the iPhone cases, announced the recall following at least 24 reports of skin irritation or chemical burns, according to the U. S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
The manufacturer warned that if the cases crack or break, the liquid can leak out and come into contact with people's skin. At least one consumer reported permanent scarring from a chemical burn, CPSC said. Another reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands.
Affected products were manufactured in China and designed for iPhone 6, 6s and 7, according to CNN. The cases were sold nationwide through Amazon, Henri Bendel, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch, Victoria's Secret and GetMixBin.com.
Customers should immediately stop using the recalled iPhone cases and contact MixBin for a refund, CPSC said. To view photos of cases affected by the recall, please visit the company’s website.
