The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has confirmed more than 750 child and infant deaths caused by window blind cord strangulations, dating back to 1973. This number confirms that one child death occurs somewhere in the country about once every three weeks. Despite this clear record of extreme danger, not much has been done to help correct the issue.
In fact, the most advancements in window blind covering safety has come in large thanks to an organization called Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS). The group recently announced that its efforts have influenced more retailers to sell less corded window blinds systems and more cordless versions.
There have been two major window blind recalls in relation to window blind cord strangulation dangers. While the recalls helped get specific models off the market, it only put a small dent in the overall dangerous situation. Product manufacturers have not been quick to respond to recalls, and they have certainly not taken any initiative to try to improve their product designs themselves.
In fact, some have accused window blind covering manufacturers of knowingly ignoring warnings and reports of cord strangulation hazards. This is certainly feasible, seeing how little change has been made in the last several decades.
