Category:
Miscellaneous
Company/Brand:
IKEA Home Furnishings
The Danger:
Strangulations can occur if the blind's looped bead chain is not attached to the wall or the floor with the tension device provided and a child's neck becomes entangled in the free-standing loop.
Description:
This recall involves about 533,000 ISDANS, TUPPLUR, and ENJE roller blinds. These blinds are made of a solid or sheer fabric, measuring 24 to 79 inches wide, and have a metal top rail and a bead chain. ENJE has a glued label on the wall fitting showing the IKEA logotype, article number, 5-digit supplier number, four digit date stamp (YYWW) and "Made in Taiwan." The roller blinds have an orange warning label attached at the base of the blind that is marked with AA-136800-3.
Sold At:
IKEA stores nationwide from July 2005 through July 2009 for between $10 and $55.
What To Do:
Immediately check the recalled roller blinds to make sure the tension device provided is attached to the bead chain and installed into the wall or floor. If not attached, consumers should immediately stop using the roller blinds and contact IKEA or visit their local IKEA store to receive a free repair kit. The repair kits for the roller blinds will be available the second week of November. If you have difficulty installing the tension device, contact IKEA toll-free at (888) 966-4532 anytime, or visit www.ikea-usa.com for more information.
