IKEA Iris and Alvine Roman Blinds — Risk of Child Strangulation

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of all IKEA Home Furnishing Iris and Alvine Roman blinds on the basis that such blinds pose a significant risk of strangulation where a child places his/her neck in an exposed inner cord on the backside of the Roman blinds.

This recall involves all sizes of Iris and Alvine Roman blinds in white. The blinds have a sewn-in label at the top edge of the blind with the Ikea logotype, article name (Iris or Alvine), 5-digit supplier number 19799 or 21369, four-digit date stamp (YYWW) and the words, “made in India.”

On the bottom edge of the blind, there is a sewn-in orange/white safety warning label. The blinds are made from 100 percent cotton.

Ikea stores sold the blinds from July 2005 through June 2008 for between $7 and $30.

Consumers are being instructed that they should return the blinds to any IKEA store to obtain a refund.
