MixBin Electronics, which made iPhone cases for Victoria’s Secret and Tory Burch, recalled all its iPhone 6, 6s and 7 liquid glitter cases Tuesday after reports of skin irritations and burns from leaking liquid and glitter.

MixBin’s recall announcement admits to 24 reports of skin irritation or chemical burns from around the world, 19 of which came from the United States.

“One consumer reported permanent scarring from a chemical burn,” the notice states, “and another consumer reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands.”

The worldwide recall covers approximately 275,000 cases in the United States, Canada and Mexico and 22 different styles. In addition to the 14 Victoria’s Secret styles, four were made for sale at Nordstrom Rack or on Amazon; three were for Henri Bendel; and one was for Tory Burch. The cases, made in China for New Jersey-based MixBin, sold for $15 to $65 from October 2015 through June.

MixBin asks customers stop using the cases immediately and contact the company for a refund at 855-215-4935, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern time, Monday through Friday.
