Green Mountain Vista Inc. Recalls Roman Shades due to Risk of Strangulation
What’s the problem?
October 7, 2010 - Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of about 200,000 Roman shades manufactured by Green Mountain Vista inc. of Williston, VT. Strangulations can occur when a child places his/her neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric on the backside of the shade or when a child pulls the cord out and wraps it around his/her neck.
This recall involves all Green Mountain Vista Roman shades. These shades have a small sewn-on label on the back side of the shade with RN#107875. The items being recalled were sold at specialty home textile retail shops and mail order companies nationwide from September 2004 through August 2010 for between $40 and $120.
Window Blind Recall Update 9/6/12: Blind Xpress 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.
