People Are Getting Savage Chemical Burns From These Glitter iPhone Cases
Glitter-filled iPhone cases: cute and addictive to watch...and now, dangerous!?
MixBin, a company that sells "liquid glitter iPhone cases" on Amazon has been forced to recall their products after reports found the cases were causing serious chemical burns.
The cases, which ranged in price from $15 to $65, were also stocked at US retailers including Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch and even Victoria's Secret.
Customers have taken to social media to display their injuries and call out the company for their faulty products. Some noticed their cases leaking, and others felt a burning sensation after close contact with their phones.
