Liquid-filled iPhone cases recalled

OTTAWA — Several styles of liquid-filled iPhone cases are being recalled due to reports of skin irritation and burns if they crack or break open.

Health Canada says 16 styles of cases, which such names as Star Glitter and Leopard Snow Globe, contain liquid and glitter that float in the plastic case.

If the cases break open or crack, the liquid can leak out and cause blisters or chemical burns.

Health Canada says the distributor has no reports of injuries in Canada, but there have been 19 reports of leakage causing skin irritation in the U.S.

In Canada, more than 11,000 of the Chinese-made units were sold at Victoria’s Secret retail stores, online and at airport duty-free shops.

About 263,000 units were sold in the United States and about 400 were sold in Mexico.

The recalled cases were sold from October 2015 to June 2017.

A full list of the affected cases is posted on the Health Canada website.
