Blinds, Shades Recalled After Deaths

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a wide recall recently on Roll-up and Roman window shades due to strangulation risks and deaths. About once a month a child in the U.S. dies from window cord strangulation. Children are becoming entangled in the inner cord of a Roman shade, which has resulted in deaths in many children. These shades are sold by such retailers as IKEA International, Williams-Sonoma Inc., and Target Corp. Some of these retailers have already pulled these products off their shelves. The CPSC works to recall products as quickly as they can. When there is a fatality, especially a child, it is of the utmost concern to the agency.
