September 6, 2012 – A Livonia, Mich., establishment is now recalling approximately 139,000 custom-made vertical and 315,000 horizontal blinds after a 2-year-old girl reportedly strangled to death in one of the products. Blind Xpress custom vertical blinds have an adjustment cord which forms a loop that has a weighted device at the bottom. The horizontal blinds do not have inner cord stop devices to prevent the accessible inner cords from being pulled out, which may cause a child to become entangled in the cord loop and strangle.
