I lost my son Colton Shero on October 17, 2013. He was two days away from his 2nd birthday. Colton was playing in our family room playing with his 3 yr. old brother Stan.

The Shade Store is recalling 45,000 roman shades. This recall involves custom-made Roman shades that were made out of fabric and of woven wood. The shades do not have any permanent markings and were sold at five showroom locations and online at www.theshadestore.com from February 2006 through March 2011 for between $120 and $355 per shade.

The reason for this recall is because the shades, as of December 3rd, no longer meet the safety standards the Industry created this past year. Lowe’s had their chance to be apart of the major recall back in December 2009, but for some reason did not want to participate.
Well this is a hefty recall! Kudos to the CPSC! It’s about time! We have been writing for 6 years about how dangerous roman shades and roll up shades are. Here are the links that contain the recalls in them.
