Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports some Matchstick Roman Blinds manufactured between January 2013 and March 2013 were not marked with Australia’s mandatory safety warning sticker on the outer packaging as required by the Trade Practices (Consumer Product Safety Standard—Corded Internal Window Coverings) Regulations 2010. Failure to install the Blinds in accordance with the instructions or installing them while unaware of the risk of strangulation by the cord poses a serious safety risk to children.

According to the ACCC, the following Blinds are subject to this recall:

  • Indoor Blind Matchstick 90 by 210 cm Roman Blind; Item Number 1261002
  • Indoor Blind Matchstick 120 by 210 cm Roman Blind; Item Number 1261003
