Pretty Much All Roman And Roll-Up Blinds Recalled

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Window Covering Safety Council have announced a “recall to repair” of all Roman shades and roll-up shades, after multiple reports of deaths and near strangulations in recent years. If you’ve got kids in your house and you use either type of window covering, visit www.windowcoverings.org or call 800-506-4636 to receive a free kit that will let you retrofit the shades and blinds with clips.

Here’s a video from the Window Covering Safety Council explaining the problem. It should also probably be recalled, because I nearly strangled myself while watching it.
