Strangulation Death of a Child Prompts Recall To Repair Window Blinds By Vertical Lan
For horizontal blinds, the blinds do not have inner cord stop devices to prevent the accessible inner cords from being pulled out. If an inner cord is pulled out, a child can become entangled in the loop and strangle. For vertical blinds, strangulations can occur if a child's neck becomes entangled on the free-standing loop formed by the bead chain or by the cord with a weighted device. For cellular shades, strangulations can occur if a child's neck becomes entangled on the shade's free-standing looped cord.
