Some 50 million Roman blinds are being recalled in a blind recall of "historic proportions," involving "virtually every Roman blind and roller shade on the market," per ABC News.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging owners to contact the Window Covering Safety Council with information on obtaining a repair kit. The WCSC can be reached at 1-800-506-4636 or www.windowcoverings.org.

The recall was issued after kids were reported to have strangled themselves. The CPSC states five kids have died and 16 have suffered close call incidents as a result of the blinds.
