Several news reports have indicated that multiple standard cordlock top-down/bottom-up shades are being recalled over a possible strangulation hazard.
According to the news agencies, these items come with cord stops that, during assembly, were tied in one knot, which could keep the cord from functioning properly. If the item doesn’t function properly, the item could pose a strangulation hazard to children, which could be potentially risky.
All custom-made cellular and pleated window shades manufactured by Hunter Douglas Fabrication Co. and sold across the nation between January of 2011 and August of 2012 are listed under this recall.
