WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Nearly 1 million roller blinds and Roman shades sold by a number of retailers are being recalled because of their potential to possibly strangle a small child.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says a child's neck can get tangled in the inner cord of the Roman shades, or the exposed loop of the roller blinds.

The agency says it received one report of a child getting tangled in Roman shades sold by Hanover Direct and two reports of children getting tangled in Roman shades sold by Bed Bath & Beyond.

None of the children were seriously hurt.

The recall includes:

  1. ISDANS, TUPPLUR and ENJE roller blinds sold at Ikea from July 2005-July 2009. These blinds are made of a solid or sheer fabric, measuring 24-79" wide, and have a metal top rail and a bead chain. ENJE has a glued label on the wall fitting showing the IKEA logotype, article number, 5-digit supplier number, four digit date stamp (YYWW) and "Made in Taiwan". The roller blinds have an orange warning label attached at the base of the blind that is marked with AA-136800-3.
  2. Faux Suede Roman Shades sold at Hanover Direct from January 2004-December 2008. The recall includes all Faux Suede room darkening Roman shades with style number 12810A.
