cnet - Facebook pauses sales of the Oculus Quest 2 due to face irritation concerns
 
“Facebook said on Tuesday that it's temporarily halting sales of the Oculus Quest 2. The move comes after several reported cases of skin reactions to the headset's included foam faceplate.
 
The company says a small percentage of Quest 2 owners have reported the issue. But in some cases reported online, the issue has been bad enough to cause people's faces to puff up and their eyes to close. Facebook changed the manufacturing process of its foam face interfaces earlier this year, but the concerns still prompted Facebook to stop selling the Quest 2 in coordination with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
 
Facebook's adding silicone face-mask covers in future versions of the Quest 2, which will fit over the foam. Existing customers can contact Facebook for the replacement cover as well.
 
After an internal investigation involving dermatologists that began last December, the skin issue is being considered contact dermatitis rather than an allergic reaction.”
 
If you were one of the “small percentage,” you would probably be very angry about this.

    Imagine using that thing and having that happen.

    Same here, no Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.  Have no use for any of them.

    Ugh. Wish I could ditch FB, but keeping in touch with family members across the states rely on it.

    I ditched fb a long time ago and I keep in touch with family and friends very easily. How? I have a phone. They can tell me what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner but thankfully I do not have to see pics. Just like the good old days. I prefer it this way.

    Apple, Google, Microsoft is just as bad as Facebook these dayz! the next few years MS will be worse than FB and on ur personal desktop.  MS needs to be stopped before it becomes FB.
