Window Blinds Recall

In a story likely to catch the eye of any parent with small children, six companies are responding to the deaths of three children by recalling millions of window blinds and shades. The children tragically got caught in cords that help the coverings move up and down.

The recall includes Pottery Barn Kids and IKEA as well as smaller companies that sold their window covers to major retailers like Target. No deaths have been linked to the blinds and shades from Pottery Barn Kids and IKEA, but there have been reports of kids getting caught up in the inner cord and – bless them – the companies chose to act with an abundance of caution.
