Many recall campaigns take place because of issues that could lead to injuries. But others are unfortunately launched after people are personally injured.
The latest recall to have impacted people directly involve items that may be very familiar to many of you: iPhone cases.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, certain cases produced with glitter that floats inside the liquid present in the product have been associated with several incidents involving skin irritation, blisters, and even chemical burns that have resulted in swelling and permanent scars.
MixBin Electronics, the company behind these cases, says that the recalled products were sold at Amazon, Victoria’s Secret, Tory Burch, and other stores between October 2015 and June 2017. The cases, which resemble snow globes, ranged in price from $15 to $65 and they were all manufactured in China.
Since a crack may cause the chemical to leak and expose consumers to serious risks, the company is urging anyone with the recalled cases to stop using them. They should be returned to MixBin so refunds can be produced.
This recall is important because it impacts consumers across the country who own the iPhone 6, 6s and 7. If you suspect you have this recalled product or you know someone who does, you may want to contact the company behind this recall directly.
