Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain hobbled-style, motorized or manual, custom-made Roman Shades.

The recalled Roman Shades were made out of fabric mounted on a metal frame, manufactured between December 17, 2009 and July 23, 2015. Each Shade has two to six vertical mesh lift bands that are 8 inches wide, secured by lift band clamps at the bottom of the shade, and a 1-inch wide vertical hobble tape running the length of the shade.

The manufacturer, Lutron Electronics Inc., and the production date appear on a white label on the Shades’s tube located at the top of the Shades. Due to its location on the Shade, the label can only be seen when the Shade is fully extended (i.e., unfurled). Consumers should contact Lutron Electronics (see details below) if the label cannot be located.

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

According to the CPSC, strangulations can occur when a child places his/her neck between the exposed ribbon (this is known as the “hobble tape”) and the fabric on the backside of the shade or when a child pulls the tape out and wraps it around his/her neck.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Roman Shades, please do not use them. Instead, please contact Lutron Electronics for a full refund or a free replacement Shade.
