Although I guess I can't judge someone if they DO rock a glittery pink phone case, I will still judge you if you are degenerate enough to use an iPhone (or any OTHER iDevice). :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

(All kidding aside though, I am seriously passing this along on the off chance any of you have wives, girlfriends, coworkers, sisters, daughters, etc. who use(d) cases like these and don't realize what kind of danger they're in.)

Quote from:


Your cute, sparkly iPhone case could be putting you in danger.

The company behind some of the most popular glitter-filled iPhone cases is recalling hundreds of thousands of its products after nearly two dozen of reports of chemical burns.

It turns out that if the sparkly liquid inside the cases leaks onto your skin, it can cause some pretty nasty chemical burns. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the cases have already been linked to 24 burn injuries around the world.

The cases in question were all made by a company called MixBin, though many of them were sold under popular brand names, like Victoria's Secret and Tory Burch. Many were also sold on Amazon under the MixBin name. The CPSC estimates at least 263,000 of the accessories were sold between October 2015 and June 2017.

If you do have one of the recalled cases, this is not a recall you'll want to ignore. The CPSC reports that at least one burn victim has "permanent scarring" and  another "reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands."

You can find more information about the recall and see an entire list of all the affected cases here.

...I personally seriously cannot even begin to understand why the hell this company thought it'd be even remotely a good idea to fill these things with something that can apparently eat your friggin' skin off. Good LORD, man!!

my Wife got a flip phone for me - which I could operate.....then she "upgraded" and got a smart phone for me - found out it's "smarter" than I so it just sits (Samsung)

I bought my Wife an IPad so that when/if she returns to work (shoulder surgery) she can take it with her overseas and watch local tv, via Dish Anywhere.....she uses her Samsung phone for news, instead of the IPad or her computer - I use the IPad to get video of the Horses

so, no hand-raising here - in fact I'd like to see them all blow up at the time drivers are using them in their cars (instead of paying attention to their driving)

I read a story about this yesterday.

Personally, I only ever get phone cases that are made to protect a phone in a fall. Because I drop the damn thing all the time  :P
