Smart phone cases used to have one job – protect smart phones. But like everything else with the millennials, they now do more than their created functions. Now, they beautify our phones, identify levels of class, show off and more.
Sadly, though, as Samsung’s exploding S7 has proven, technology-related items can some times, well, blow up in our faces – literally.
So hundreds of thousands of iPhone cases are being recalled it was found out they can be dangerous to their users.
The cases, which hold liquid and glitters in them, were distributed by MixBin Electronics. The recalled cases were made for the iPhone 6, 6s and 7.
MixBin has recalled 263,000 iPhone cases after 24 reports of skin irritation and chemical burns when the cases broke, leaking glitter and liquid everywhere. And these aren’t obscure cases, either. They’ve been sold at retailers like Amazon, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch and Victoria’s Secret as recently as June, so there’s a real chance you picked one up.
If you have one of the cases, you can contact MixBin to get a refund.
