Green Mountain Vista Inc. of Vermont is recalling 200,000 Roman window shades because of a danger that children might strangle themselves on exposed cords, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Roman shades recall adds to a long list of similar actions since December. So far, no one has been hurt by Green Mountain Vista shades, the CPSC said. They were sold nationwide in stores and mail-order catalogs from September 2004 through August 2010 for $40 to $120. The shades were made in China and carry a sewn label with RN#107875 on it.
