Millions of window roll-up blinds and Roman shades have been recalled as they pose a strangulation danger to children.
A child is at risk when the lifting loops slide off the side off the blinds. A child’s head can become entangled and if the loop slips around the child’s neck, strangulation can result.
The recall involves roll-up blinds without release clips, as well as all Woolrich Roman shades. The Roman shades were sold exclusively at Target from March 2006 through December 2008. The roll up blinds were sold at retail stores nationwide from January 1989 through December 2003.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised consumers to check the backside of the roll-up blinds to determine if they have release clips. If they do not have release clips, stop using them immediately. You can contact Lewis Hyman for a repair kit at (877) 354-5457.
