Recall Details

In Conjunction With:
Description:

This recall involves custom-ordered made-to-measure Serena® and SIVOIA QS TRIATHLON® roller shades with the following model numbers:

 

QSFRJ-S2A13-B; QSFRJ-S2A13-BN; QSFRJ-S2A13-PS; QSFRJ-S2A13-PSN; SYRJ-S2A13-B; SYRJ-S2A13-BN; SYRJ-S2A13-PS; SYRJ-S2A13-PSN; SMR-S2A13; SMR-S2A13-N

 

The model numbers are printed on a white label located on the shade battery rail, the equivalent support backbone for plug-in & manual shades, or on the inside of the shade fabric wrapped head rail or valance (fascia). Affected shades have the following date codes:  W45 - Y46.  These codes can also be found on the white label on the side of the head rail.  The letter represents the year and the number represents that week of the year (W = 2013, X = 2014, Y = 2015).  For example, the code Y46 is for the manufacturing week ending on Friday 11/13/2015.  The label on affected shades also contains a product family name at the top of the label - either "Serena" or "Sivoia QS Triathlon."  The majority of the shades are battery-operated and controlled by a Lutron remote control. Some of the models are plug-in and some are manual. All of the models are cordless.
