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, the commission said.

The commission urged anyone who purchased one of the recalled iPhone cases to stop using it immediately and request a refund from MixBin Electronics.
