Between 1973 and now, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has collected approximately 770 reports of children and infants dying due to window blind cord strangulation. In other terms, one child loses their life to window blind cord strangulation every three weeks in the country. The extreme dangers caused by window blind cords are obvious, but they are still on blinds in millions upon millions of American homes and businesses.
A group called the Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) has actually made the most strides in advancing window blind cord safety. The group announced that many retailers across the country are opting to not stock corded systems, replacing them with cordless window covering products.
Since 1973, only two major recalls for window blind coverings have been enacted. Due to the consistent number of child deaths to window blind cord strangulation, it is clear these recalls are not enough.
Window blind makers have been accused of doing as little as they possibly can to avoid responsibility for the incidents. Some have even accused product makers of ignoring CPSC warnings altogether. Where product improvements could have been made, nothing has been done instead to save companies money.

Companies are often pressured by consumer lawsuits, and so are legislators.
