Blind and Shade Recall

Close to 1 million roller blinds and Roman shades sold by IKEA, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Hanover Direct are being recalled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says they pose a serious strangulation risk to small children.

A child's neck can get tangled in the inner cord of the shades or the exposed loop of the roller blinds.

IKEA previously recalled blinds in August, as well as in 2008, following the death of a child. No incidents involving IKEA blinds were reported in this recall.

The agency says it has received one report of a child getting tangled in Roman shades sold by Hanover Direct and two reports of children getting tangled in Roman shades sold by Bed Bath & Beyond.

None of the children was seriously injured.
