When it comes to your child’s safety there is no greater desire than to make sure that the place you call home is not a potential risk to those that mean the most to you. In the past couple of years the CPSC (Consumer Protection Safety Commission) has stepped up its efforts to reduce the number of deaths each year attributed to strangulation from cording on shades and corded blinds. CPSC is working in conjunction with well known Window Covering manufacturers such as Hunter Douglas™, Levelor™, and Graber™. The Shades and Blinds most affected by the recent recalls are mostly foreign made coming primarily out of China. Of the millions of shades that have been recalled most are ready made shades that are carried by the largest retailers such as Home Depot™, Lowes™, Walmart™, Target™, Pier One™, and Bed Bath and Beyond™.
Shades Shutter Blinds requires all of its manufacturers to provide proof that all of the products supplied to them and ultimately to you the consumer are CPSC approved. The single greatest danger from these shades and blinds is the cording on the back side of the shades and blinds which can be pulled out away from the shade allowing the child to stick their head through and wrap it around their neck.
