Lowe's Recalls Blinds and Shades

Lowe's blinds and shades recalled

Lowe's stores have issued a recall of approximately 11 million Roman shades and roll-up blinds. This announcement comes after reports that two young children almost strangled in the products' cords, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The Roman shades were sold at Lowe's stores, at other retail stores, and online from at least 1999 through 2010. The roll-up blinds were sold between 1999 and 2005. The CPSC said consumers should stop using the products right away and contact the Window Covering Safety Council for free repair kits.

Since 1990, more than 200 infants and children have died after becoming entangled in blinds. Last year, government safety officials issued a voluntary industry-wide recall of over 50 million shades and blinds due to reports of five child deaths and 16 injuries since 2006.
