Lowes is yet another retailer associated with a blind recall, they have announced that 11 million of these Roman shades and blinds are to be recalled. The reason for the new recall was due to two incidents where children were almost strangled, as you would imagine this is very worrying.
According to Bloomberg, the CPSC reports that Lowes is to recall 5 million of the roller blinds and 6 million of the Roman shades, if you own one, then you are asked to stop using them. I would advise you to take them down.
There is a solution though, if you phone 1-800-506-4636 or visit the Window Coverings website you will be given a free repair kit. We do not know how long the delivery time will be, but we are sure that they will be sent to you ASAP.
This Lowes 11 million blinds recall is all part of the same one that has been going on since December 2009, which has now totaled more than 50 million. Other retailers that were affected by the previous recall were Wal-Mart, Pottery Barn amongst others.
