Lowe's is recalling about 11 million blinds and Roman shades out of concern that children could strangle on the cords.

The recall involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades and roll-up blinds sold by Lowe's. That's about 6 million shades and 5 million roll-up blinds.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says two children became entangled in the exposed cord found on the backside of the Roman shades while looking out of windows.

The recalled shades and blinds were sold at Lowe's stores, other retail stores and at www.lowes.com since at least 1999 through June of this year.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled products and contact the Window Covering Safety Council for repair kits, at 800-506-4636 or www.windowcoverings.org.
