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.
