"We should all be determined to take whatever steps are necessary to put an end to the decades long cycle of a child dying nearly every month from strangulation in a window covering cord.  I have spoken with far too many parents who suffered the unspeakable loss of their child from this hidden hazard.  Having a new label that better informs parents about blinds and shades that are safer for children is a positive step, but it should be coupled with a real effort to move away, as Target and IKEA are doing, from the sale of products that are known to strangle children.”
