  • This is scary because so many teens would love these. Don’t they test them before selling to the public.


  • these cases do look cool but at least i know to be wary about these in the future. i will stick to basic and boring covers lol


  • How dangerous. Especially when these will appeal to teens and younger by their design. Saving money buying cheap covers is attractive- until you realise something like this could happen.


  • Wow that’s scary! Especially considering this design would probably be popular with teens and young people!


  • Oh dear. Thank you for sharing.


  • Ooh, thanks for the share. I worry there are many of these out there.


  • I’m amazed by how dangerous fairly innocuous seeming products can be.


  • wow I imagine that is one huge amount of product to be returned and refunded from all across the world.

    Is this another case of “quick get it out in to the market to make profit” without actually sticking to standard safety guidelines??? – so many products now are hitting the shelves or consumers without stringent testing and safety standards being met, meaning more danger and accidents to the consumer and in the end a higher loss than the quick profit these companies are making by not following the rules! so many people out to make themselves get rich quick and they are successfully failing and hurting people in the process – when is enough enough?


  • How scarey. Thank you for sharing this


  • Scary stuff ! Thanks for sharing.


  • More recalls …seriously where are our checks?


  • Gosh, do they really need to put toxic chemicals in a phone case for decoration? Couldn’t you just use baby oil? Honestly, there should be some kind of toxic tax for companies that manufacture this junk.


  • This problem has been around for a while – thank heavens they are finally being recalled.


  • How does this get past safety checks?


  • Why would they need a chemical in there?
