Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain Horizontal / Venetian Blinds with a slat size of 5.0 centimetres (approximately two inches). The products are custom made to order in various sizes and colours.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation.

According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Blinds pose a strangulation hazard by not having an inner cord stop. Inner cord stops are devices that prevent an inner cord from being pulled and forming a loop in which young children may pull around their neck, posing a risk of strangulation.

Neither Health Canada nor Western Window Coverings has received reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these blinds.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Window Blinds, please do not use them or let your child(ren) play near them. Instead, contact Western Window Coverings Ltd. for instructions. You can also consult Health Canada’s Blind Cord Safely Web page: http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/security-securite/home-maison/curtain_cord-cordons_rideaux-eng.php
