Several models of iPhone liquid gel glitter cases which have been recalled by Health Canada.
Health Canada has joined in a worldwide recall of several styles of Liquid Glitter iPhone Cases after reports the cases leaked and caused skin burns.

MixBin Electronics makes the cases for the popular iPhone 6, 6s and 7 models which were manufactured in China and imported into the United States.

MixBin says the liquid and glitter can leak out of the case if it breaks or cracks and can cause irritation, blisters or burns if it comes into contact with the skin.

Health Canada says so far there have been no reports of injuries or incidents reported in Canada. Four reports of chemical burns, itching, redness, and blisters due to leaks have been reported in England while another 19 reports of leakage causing skin irritation were received from consumers in the U.S.

Approximately 11,400 of the 267,000 units worldwide were sold in Canada at Victoria’s Secret stores, online and airport duty-free shops from October 2015 to June 2017.
