The cases contain glitter floating in an unidentified liquid — even the recall notice doesn’t reveal the composition of the liquid.

More than 200,000 of the cases were sold in the U.S. and 19 of those cases reported burns, blisters and irritation upon breaking. One consumer reported burns and swelling on her leg, face, neck, chest and hands, according to the recall issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

MixBin, which sold the cases for $ 15 to $ 65 will offer a full refund, but owners have to send a picture of the case to prove it was sold by the company.
