People have noted this problem on forums as well as Twitter, as seen by the image posted to Twitter above. Some people are saying that the problem is not present in the black Touch Type keyboard, due to a different material being utilized on the bottom of the cover. Microsoft has acknowledged the problem:

 

Microsoft makes every effort to ensure our customers receive a high quality product. We are in active contact with our Customer Support operations and are aware of a small number of instances of material separation

 

Users who think they are having a problem with their keyboard cover should contact Microsoft's support.
