Arlo Blinds Cordless Lift Bamboo Shade recalled due to potential strangulation hazard to children
Product: Arlo Blinds Cordless Lift Bamboo Shade
Issue: Consumer products - Strangulation hazard
What to do: Immediately stop using the recalled roman shade, dispose and contact Top Blinds for a refund.


This recall involves Cordless Lift Bamboo Shade by Arlo BlindsThe products are a Roman Shade available in different colors.  The products were sold on Wayfair.ca and may have been called Aymeric Semi-Sheer Roman Shade.  On the bottom part of the headrail it will say "Merchant Blinds, Norcross, GA". See image 7 for package labelling. The model number begins with "04CB" and is located in the above link.

Issue

Health Canada has determined that the recalled blinds do not meet the Corded Window Coverings Regulations and pose a strangulation hazard. The design of the product does not properly address the hazards of exposed inner cords, which can create loops. Young children may pull looped cords around their neck, or become entangled in the cords, causing a strangulation hazard.

Children can become entangled in blind cords, which can quickly lead to strangulation and even death. Health Canada recommends cordless window coverings. For more information on the hazard, see Blind Cord Safety.

As of July 5, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada. 

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and keep all cords away from children.  Uninstall the product, cut all cord(s) and then dispose of the product. Consumers may contact Top Blinds for a full refund.

For more information, consumers may contact Top Blinds toll-free at 1-888-608-8468 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or by email at: CanadaWFRecall@topblinds.com.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
