Window Shades Recalled Due to Strangulation Hazard
On November 3, 2015, Carra Imports recalled window shades due to a strangulation hazard. The strangulation takes place when the shade’s continuous loop pull cord or bead chain is not attached to the wall. A child’s neck then becomes entangled in the loop when a child places his or her neck between the exposed inner cord and the fabric on the backside of the shade or when a child pulls the cord and wraps it around the neck. About 55,000 units were part of this recall.
The shades are Roman style and come in a variety of custom sizes and colors. They, however, do not contain any identifying labels or markings on the products.
If you believe you own one of these products, you should immediately stop using them and contact Carra for a free repair kit. You can call Carra Imports at 800-845-8637 from 8:30 am to 5 pm ET Monday through Friday.
Chicken Recipe Cat Treats Recalled Due to Propylene Glycol Threat
On November 6, 2015, Blue Buffalo recalled a limited production of Blue Kitty Yums Chicken Recipe Cat Treats due to the fact that they may actually contain levels of propylene glycol, which is not permitted by the FDA. They may exhibit signs of depression and may have a loss of coordination, muscle twitching, and excessive urination and thirst. If your cat has experienced these symptoms after eating the product, you should contact your veterinarian. One consumer wrote in a complaint, which caused the FDA to investigate. Propylene glycol was found in one bad of cat treats. However, there have been no reports since.
If you have purchased this product, you can return it to the place of purchase for a refund. If you have questions, you can contact Blue Buffalo at 888-667-1508 from 8 AM to 5 PM EST Monday through Friday.
