October is Window Covering Safety Month



    October is Window Covering Safety Month
    On average, one child a month dies as a result of being strangled in a window covering cord, consumer officials say.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission wants you to inspect your window coverings inside your home for possible hazards.

    The group has declared October as window covering safety month.

    Parents are encouraged to inspect their window coverings for any long cords that may hang down, creating what could be a deadly situation for kids.

    The CPSC says using a cordless or inaccessible cord window coverings can prevent a tragedy involving loose or a looped window covering cord.
