Aug. 1, 2017—MixBin Electronics recalled certain liquid-glitter iPhone cases, because liquid and glitter might leak out of the cases, which poses burn and skin irritation hazards.

The recall involves all liquid-glitter cellphone cases for iPhone 6, 6s and 7. The cases, which are about 5-1/2 inches by 2-3/4 inches, contain liquid and glitter that float in the plastic case. They were sold in various colors and styles. The model number can be found on the product’s package.
