This recall involves the product, Safdie & Co. Home – Premium. Day & Night Zebra Roller Blind Dual Layer Shades for Windows Sheer or Privacy Light Control, in grey and white colours with a style number: 99803.
Health Canada has determined that the recalled blinds do not meet the Corded Window Coverings Regulations and pose a strangulation hazard. The design of the product does not properly address the hazards of exposed operating cords, which can create loops. Young children may pull looped cords around their neck, or become entangled in the cords, causing a strangulation hazard.
Children can become entangled in blind cords, which can quickly lead to strangulation and even death. Health Canada recommends cordless window coverings. For more information on the hazard, see Blind Cord Safety.
As of July 29, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents, and no reports of injuries in Canada.
