That is iOS trying to treat a number in text as a phone number and offering to dial it for you.

Typically that happens when you tap on a text field that the app programmer has set as potentially containing a phone number. But I guess that it can happen if a browser "recognises" a URL as a phone number when you click on the link.

Given that the number is suspiciously like the entire quick bar, unless the quickbar option you are selecting is somehow corrupted to just a number, it looks to me like some kind of weird Chrome on iOS bug.

Yeah, it's clear that iOS/Chrome think it's a phone number, but I've not had this issue on any other website, it's not a corruption issue because it's consistent across sessions, and I see no reason why it should be treating the whole string of numbers as one element, so my feeling is that it is something to do with how that part of the page is encoded.
