Eight deaths are reported over the last ten years.The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the window blind industry are recalling virtually every Roman blind and roller shade on the market -- around 50 million sets -- because the cords pose a strangulation hazard to children...
Not saying these deaths are not sad, but those numbers are insignificant. Doing some probability calculation would result in finding that those small number of deaths are not completely the fault of the product makers. It's like plastic bag now has a print: strangulation risk.
More kids probably die due to natural weather. Do you recall the weather? Jeez, what a waste of money.
So many over-reacting fools... Ugh...
