Late last year, Facebook revealed that it was investigating reports of skin irritationcaused by the face cushion on the Oculus Quest 2 headset. The company said it had received reports from a small fraction of its customers of mild skin irritation caused by the Quest 2 headset.

To remedy the situation, Facebook announced a global voluntary recall for the original foam cushion, giving existing Quest 2 owners the option to claim a medical-grade silicone cover that won't trigger any allergies and is easy to wipe clean.

Along with the recall, Facebook announced that it would temporarily halt sales of Quest 2 headsets while it sorts out the recall. When sales resume on August 24, all new Quest 2 headsets will include a silicone cover in the box.

Facebook is also using the sales halt as an opportunity to refresh the Quest 2 lineup. The 64GB model won't be coming back. Facebook is replacing it with a 128GB version for the same $299 price.
