Issue

The recalled blinds do not meet the Corded Window Coverings Regulations and pose a strangulation hazard.

The design of the product does not properly take into account the dangers of exposed cords which can create loops. Young children can pull on these cords with loops and place them around their necks or get tangled up in the cords, posing a risk of strangulation.

As of October 23, 2022, 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 out of reach of children. Products can be returned to be exchanged for a cordless replacement.

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