Lowe's recalls 11 million blinds, shades

December 1, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Lowe's is recalling about 11 million blinds and Roman shades out of concern that children could strangle on the cords.The recall involves all styles and sizes of roll-up blinds and roman shades sold by Lowe's.

Roll-up blinds without release clips are included in the recall, but blinds that have release clips are not included.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said two children became entangled in the exposed cord found on the backside of Roman shades while looking out of windows.

The recalled shades and blinds were sold at Lowe's and other stores from at least 1999 through June of this year.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled products and contact the Window Covering Safety Council for repair kits, at (800) 506-4636 or www.windowcoverings.org.
