“Blinds Recalled”

Smith and Noble is recalling 1.3 million Roman shades and roller shades, after a child was nearly strangled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says a 5-year-old boy in Tacoma, Wash., was entangled in the cord of a roller shade in May 2009. If you have these blinds in your home, please contact the manufacturer as soon as possible and remove the blinds. Always make sure cords from blinds are secured so they do not become a strangulation hazard.
