Window Blinds and Shades Child Safety Update
Months have passed since the recall of more than 50 million Roman Shades and Roll-up blinds. The recall came as the result of the deaths of five infants and many more near strangulations over the past four years. Children have been getting caught in the dangling cords that help raise and lower these blinds.
Now, nearly five months later, parents still have questions and other parents are uninformed as to the dangers of dangling blinds. The following questions and answers are designed to help parents gain information and take safety precautions in their homes. The information listed below is relevant not only to parents but to any home where children visit and play.
Today’s window blinds and shades are increasingly being manufactured with safety options and upgrades available. Be sure when purchasing new blinds or window shades to look for cordless options. They may appear as an upgrade that you need to check before purchasing your blinds.
Children’s lives are priceless. Be sure you do everything you can to provide a safe home environment for your children, starting with retrofitting or replacing outdated window treatments.
