Roman Shades and Roll-Up Blinds Recalled by Lowe’s


With the recall of about 6 million Roman shades and about 5 million roll-up blinds, Lowe’s has just added its name to the list of retailers joining the voluntary recall announced in December 2009 of ALL Roman shades and roll-up blinds.

No incidents have been reported related to roll-up blinds, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is aware of two incidents of near strangulation when young children became entangled in the exposed cord found on the backside of Roman shades while they were looking out of windows.

The recall involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades and roll-up blinds sold by Lowe’s, with the exception of Roman shades with repair kits and roll-up blinds with release clips right below the head rail on the backside of the blind (see photos from the original CPSC press release).
