JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores Recalls Roll-Up Blinds Due to Risk of Strangulation

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has added its name to the list of retailers who have announced a voluntary recall announced in December 2009 of ALL Roman shades and roll-up blinds due to a risk of stangulation to small children. This recall includes the Bamboo Roll-Up Blinds with Valance. Small children face the risk of strangulation when the lifting loop of the blind slides off the side of the blind and a child’s neck becomes entangled on the free-standing loop, or if a child places his/her neck between the lifting loop and the roll-up blind material. The blinds were sold in two sizes: 36”x72” and 48”x72.” These blinds were sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide between April 2009 and December 2009. The 36”x72” blinds were sold for $25 and the 48”x72” blinds for $30. Consumers should immediately discontinue the use of the recalled roll-up blinds and return the product to the nearest Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for a full refund by contacting Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores toll-free at 888.739.4120 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or email the firm at or by visiting its website at
