Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain custom made-to-order Cellular, Roller, Soft Horizontal and Roman-style Solar Shades.

The recalled Shades were sold in a variety of custom sizes and colors. The Shades do not have any identifying labels or markings on the individual products.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional designs and/or variations of the recalled Window Shades are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, in the case of Cellular, Roller and Soft Horizontal Shades, strangulation can occur when the Shade’s continuous loop pull cord or bead chain is not attached to the wall with a tension device and a child’s neck becomes entangled in the free-standing loop.

In the case of Roman Shades, strangulation can occur when a child places his/her neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric on the backside of the Shade or when a child pulls the cord out and wraps it around his/her neck.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Window Shades, please do not use them. Instead, consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Window Shades and contact Carra for a free repair kit.

If the recalled cellular, roller and soft horizontal Shades do not have hold down devices installed, contact Carra Imports to receive a repair kit that includes a hold down device and instructions to install it. The repair kit for the Roman shades includes instructions to remove the pull cords and to install metal rings to raise and lower the shades to remove the hazard. Carra is directly contacting registered consumers who purchased the recalled Window Shades.
