Nearly 275,000 liquid glitter iPhone cases sold at Henri Bendel, Tory Burch and Victoria's Secret have been recalled after reports that the fluid leaked out and caused skin irritation, blisters and chemical burns.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Monday that there have been two dozen reported incidents, including 19 in the United States.

"One consumer reported permanent scarring from a chemical burn and another consumer reported chemical burns and swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body and hands," according to a statement.

The cases, which were sold for the iPhone 6, 6s and 7 from October 2015 through June 2017, resemble a snow globe - with glitter that floats inside the liquid.

MixBin Electronics, which sold the cases, said in a statement that there was a risk that the cases could crack or break and the liquid could leak out and irritate users' skin. The cases ranged in price from $15 to $65 from Amazon, Henri Bendel, MixBin, Nordstrom Rack, Tory Burch and Victoria's Secret. The cases were manufactured in China, according to the commission's report.

The commission said users with the recalled cases should stop using them and contact MixBin Electronics for a refund. The full product descriptions are available on the commission's website.

MixBin Electronics did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the recall.
