The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall for Green Mountain Vista window blinds and shades, sold at IKEA, after a 1-year old girl choked to death. The agency received a similar report of a 2-year old girl who was saved by her older brother. She began to choke on the beaded chain loop hanging from a set of the shades.
Included in the recall are: 670,000 IRIS and ALVINE Roman blinds sold between July 2005 and June 2008 at IKEA and 7,300 insulated blackout roller shades and insulated Roman shades manufactured by Green Mountain Vista, Inc. The shades were sold by Country Curtains, Plow & Hearth, The Linen Source, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, Ann & Hope, The Sportsman’s Guide, Target.com, The Curtain Shop of Maine, and the Solutions catalog, sold between June 2005 and September 2008.
