Health Canada has determined that the recalled blinds do not meet the Corded Window Coverings Regulations and pose a strangulation hazard. The product can create loops exceeding 44cm. 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 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.
