What to do

Immediately stop using the recalled product.

Affected products

This recall involves the custom window coverings described as Tie up blind, White Linen Cafe Curtains, French Country Living Room Blind, Farmhouse Curtain, Country Kitchen Tie Up Valance, and Swedish Style. The products were sold online by Prolinen through Etsy Canada.


The recalled window coverings do not meet the Corded Window Coverings Regulations and pose a strangulation hazard. 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 October 5, 2023, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and keep all cords away from children.

For more information, consumers can contact the vendor by logging into their Etsy account and can also visit Help Centre for guidance.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

This recall is also posted on the OECD Global Portal on Product Recalls website. You can visit this site for more information on other international consumer product recalls.
