The defective product attorneys at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation reiterate the warning and recall notice concerning blinds by Blind Xpress, issued in conjunction with the United STates Consumer Products Safety Commission ("CPSC"). The death of a young child by strangulation prompted this product recall.
Blind Xpress of Livonia, Michigan and CPSC are announcing the recall of approximately 139,000 vertical and 315,000 such horizontal blinds. Within 2009, a two-year-old Michigan girl was reported to be strangled within the loops of a vertical blind cord which was unattached to the wall and/or floor.
The product defect associated with the Blind Xpress vertical blind units concern an adjustment cord that forms a loop which fails to attach to the wall and/or floor. At times, this "loop" has a weighted device at the bottom and the custom horizontal blinds do not have inner cord stop devices to prevent the accessible inner cords from being disengaged. This poses a risk that a child may become entangled and/or entrapped in a cord loop and suffer strangulation.
This recall involves all Blind Xpress custom-made vertical blinds that do not have a cord-tensioning device that attaches to the wall or floor, as well as all horizontal blinds that do not have inner cord stop devices.
The blinds were sold at various blind specialty stores in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana from January 1995 through December 2011.
