Attention Meijer’s shoppers: according to recent reports about 245,000 window blinds and shades were recalled, many sold at Meijer stores, because children’s necks can become entangled in the pull cord attached to the shade. Luckily, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported no accidents or injuries related to the recalled blinds.
Meijer voluntarily pulled its “At Home With Meijer” Roman shades and roll-up blinds when the CPSC announced an original recall of blinds and shades in December, which affected all major retailers. However, the CPSC inadvertently left Meijer off the list of affected retailers in that news release and is now issuing another release that does include Meijer stores.
The recall involves all Innovations and “At Home With Meijer” Roman shades and roll-up blinds and were sold at Meijer stores between January 2004 and December 2009 for about $40. Meijer requests that consumers immediately stop using the affected blinds and contact the Window Covering Safety Council for a free repair kit.
