Window Blinds Recall

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing a major recall on several types of winder blinds and shades. Here are three of the largest recalls.

The first set of shades on our recall list is the kind that rolls up. It's called the Oval Roll-Up Blinds. There is the potential for a child to be strangled in the pull cord.

The Consumer Product Safety commission is recalling more than four million of the blinds.They were sold national retail stores across the country.

The second recall is for bamboo shades called Matchstick Bamboo Roman Shades. They too could strangle a young child if that child gets caught in the inner cord. They were sold at Target stores nationwide.

The third recall is for the Melina Roman Blind which can also catch a child around the neck. The problem here is the exposed inner cord. These shades were sold at IKEA stores.
