Product Recall: Ikea Roman Blinds


Ikea has recalled 670,000 IRIS and ALVINE Roman blinds. Strangulation can occur when a child places his neck in an exposed inner cord on the backside of the roman blinds. On April 4, 2008, a 1-year-old girl in Greenwich, Conn.became entangled in the inner cord.

CPSC reminds consumers to examine all Roman Blinds and shades in their homes. If looped pull cords are present or exposed inner cords are found on the back of blinds or shades and children are in the home or occasionally visit your home, please consider replacing them with blinds or shades that do not have exposed pull cords or inner cords.
