Shade Recall Prompted by Two Near Infant Strangulations

Approximately 364,000 Dublin Energy Solution Roman Shades have been recalled due to strangulation hazards. Reports of two near strangulations of infants prompted the product recall. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, “Strangulations can occur when a child places his/her neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric on the backside of the blind or when a child pulls the cord out and wraps it around his/her neck.”
The Roman shades sold by Bed Bath & Beyond include all sizes and colors of the Roman Shades with exposed inner cords on the back. The shades have been on the market and available for purchase since August 2007. The shades were manufactured in China.
