WASHINGTON — Federal safety officials are announcing a massive recall of 50 million window blinds and Roman shades draped in fabric, because of the strangulation risk posed by the pull-down cord. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said eight children have died and 16 children and nearly strangled in the cords. Officials said the recall shouldn’t have been necessary in the first place. You can get a free repair kit that lets the cord break-away. Call the Repair Kit Hotline at (800) 506-4636.
