Faux Wood Blinds Recalled

Date:
December 17, 2009
Category:
Miscellaneous
Company/Brand:
American Vintage Group LLC
The Danger:
Strangulation can occur when a child places his or her neck between the cords of the pull cord above the breakaway device and the device fails to break away.
Description:
This recall involves about 1,100 various sized custom Faux Wood Blinds with 2" slats in two colors (silk white and pearl). The recall only involves custom-sized Faux Wood Blinds. The pull cord with breakaway device is on the right side, while two single cords on the left side control the open/close feature of the slats. There is a label inside the head rail that states "NIENMADE China" and a second label inside the head rail with a manufacturing code beginning with the letters "MFG" followed by four numbers. A warning label on the bottom rail states, "Cords and bead chains can loop around a child's neck and STRANGLE."
Sold At:
Various blind dealers in Texas from April 2009 through September 2009 for about $45 to $65 per blind.
