May cause strangulation and/or entanglement
This voluntary recall affects certain cellular shades, roller shades, soft horizontal shades, and Roman-style solar shades.  This recall involves four types of window coverings:

  • Cellular shades that contain a continuous loop cord operating system and either does not include a hold down device, or included in the product’s packaging a hold down device that was not properly installed on the loop cord (collectively, “Cellular Subject Product”).
  • Roller shades that contain a continuous loop bead chain operating system and a P clip style hold down device that lacks a locking feature or other mechanism to interfere with the shade’s operation if the hold down device was not properly installed (“Roller Subject Product”).
  • Soft horizontal shades that contain a continuous loop cord operating system and a P clip style hold down device that lacks a locking feature or other mechanism to interfere with the shade’s operation if the hold down device was not properly installed (“Soft Horizontal Subject Product”).

May cause strangulation

These jackets have drawstrings in the hood and at the bottom, which pose an entrapment hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation and/or entanglement hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children's upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC's actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
