Lowes 11 Million Blinds Recalled
Lowes 11 million blinds recalled over safety reasons. More than 11 million Roman blinds have been recalled by Lowes. The Consumer Product Safety Commission claims two children became entabled in cords.
The recall involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades and roll-up blinds sold by Lowe's - about 6 million shades and 5 million roll-up blinds. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says two children became entangled in the exposed cord found on the backside of Roman shades. The children were looking out of windows at the time of the incident.
In a 2009 incident, a 2-year-old boy in Colorado was found with the inner cord wrapped around his arm and neck. The following year, a 4-year-old boy from South Carolina suffered a rope burn to his neck after getting tangled in the cord of a shade. The recalled shades and blinds were sold at Lowe's stores.
