1.3 million Smith and Noble blinds recalled

US Recall News Posted on

Smith and Noble is recalling 1.3 million Roman shades and roller shades, after a child was nearly strangled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says a 5-year-old boy in Tacoma, Wash., was entangled in the cord of a roller shade in May 2009.

Millions of blinds and shades have been recalled for posing a strangulation hazard over the past several years.

In June the agency warned window blind and shade manufacturers that their products — responsible for one child strangling each month — must be safer or they will face new regulations.

The Smith and Noble blinds were sold on the company's website and through its catalog between 1998 through April 2010.
