The death of a two-year-old Michigan girl is prompting the recall of nearly 450-thousand Blind Xpress horizontal and vertical window blinds. The toddler reportedly strangled in the loop of a vertical blind cord that was not attached to the wall or floor.

The CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the window coverings and contact the Window Covering Safety Council to receive a free repair kit.
