Affected products

This recall involves zebra blinds and roller blinds intended for residential use equipped with a chain and a cord shield.


Health Canada has determined that the recalled blinds 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 and even death. 

Children can become entangled in blinds 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 January 11, 2024, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
