Additional sales of Roman shades and roll-up blinds made by Meijer have been recalled due to a strangulation hazard, according to recent news sources.
The products were originally recalled in numbers of about 240,000 in March of 2010, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Redistribution of the product has prompted this recall, affecting and additional 3,200 products.
The products subject to recall are the “Innovations” and “At Home with Meiher” Roman shades and roll-up blinds, sold between 2004 and 2009. No injuries have currently been reported, but both product pose a danger to children. The recalled product was also sold between March 2010 to September 2011 at discount retailers across the United States.
