New York, NY — About 36,000 bead curtains sold at Justice stores nationwide were voluntarily recalled for strangulation and entrapment hazards by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Tween Brands dba Justice. The CPSC announced the product recall on May 3, 2011.
The product recall was issued after it was discovered that the beaded curtains could easily tangle when an adult or child runs through the curtains, which poses a risk of the consumer becoming entangled or strangled in the beaded curtain.
“This recall involves two styles of Justice-brand beaded door curtains, the diamond beaded curtain, and the disco ball beaded curtain. These multi-colored curtains are used as a decorative divider in a doorway and measure 72 inches long. Each curtain is sold with two plastic mounting brackets, each measuring 12 inches wide. The name of the product is printed on the packaging and the curtains have tracking numbers 904598.1735 and 904597.1735 printed on labels located on one of the mounting brackets and on the packaging,” reported the CPSC press release.
Consumers are advised to return the beaded curtains to any Justice store for a full refund.
For more information about the product recall, consumers can contact Tween Brands at (800) 934-4497 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.shopjustice.com .
