Customers are being advised to return cases made for Apple's iPhones.

A mobile case manufacturer is recalling 24 models from its range after reports emerged of consumers experiencing skin irritations.

MixBix Electronics, known for its mobile accessories, are sold on Amazon and are heavily associated with Victoria's Secret. The issue is that the mobile cases in question contain a liquid that allows the glitter to float in between the plastic casing.  

However some consumers have reported skin irritations, blisters or burns when in contact with the liquid, this has forced MixBix to launch an investigation.

Customers are being advised to return cases made for Apple's iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 to which they will receive a full refund.

Though the recall is in the US, Canada and Mexico, some of the products were on Amazon. Find out here which products are being recalled.
