Lowe's Recalls Millions of Roll-Up Blinds & Roman Shades
December 1, 2010 - Lowe's has announced a massive recall of all styles
and sizes of roll-up blinds and Roman shades sold in their stores from
1999 through June 2010. The recall includes 11 million shades--6 million
Roman shades and 5 million roll-up blinds.
This latest recall was initiated because at least 2 children were nearly
strangled by Lowe's roll-up blinds and Roman shades. According to
the Lowe's recall announcement the injuries occur with the Roman shades
when a child places his/her neck between the exposed inner cord and the
fabric on the backside of the blind or when a child pulls the cord out
and wraps it around his/her neck. Strangulations with the roll-up blinds
can occur if the lifting loop slides off the side of the blind and a child's
neck becomes entangled on the free-standing loop or if a child places
his/her neck between the lifting loop and the roll-up blind material.
involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades and roll-up blinds sold
by Lowe's. Roman shades with repair kits and roll-up blinds with release
clips right below the head rail on the backside of the blind are not included
in this recall.
