JCPenney recalls roman shades and roll-up blinds

Dec '09
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Roman Shades and Roll-Up Blinds

Units: More than 2.2 million Roman shades and about 340 roll-up blinds

Importer: J. C. Penney Purchasing Corp. of Plano, Texas

Hazard:

Roman Shades: Strangulations can occur when a child places his/her neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric on the backside of the blind or when a child pulls the cord out and wraps it around his/her neck.

Roll-Up Blinds: Strangulations can occur if the lifting loop slides off the side of the blind and a child's neck becomes entangled on the free-standing loop or if a child places his/her neck between the lifting loop and the roll-up blind material.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm is aware of two incidents, in January 2009 and in August 2009, in which the same 2-year-old girl from Montgomery, Illinois was looking out the window when she became entangled in the cord found on the backside of Roman shades. In both incidents, the child's mother removed the loop that left a red mark from ear to ear. The child did not suffer permanent injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported in roll-up shades.

Description: This recall involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades and roll-up blinds sold by JCPenney.

Sold at: JCPenney Stores, JCPenney Custom Decorating, Catalog and www.jcp.com since at least 1999 to October 2009 for between $10 and $500.

Manufactured in: China, United States and other countries.
