    Tween Brands Recalls Justice Beaded Curtains

    Risk of entrapment and strangulation for children

    Tween Brands is recalling 36,000 sets of Justice brand beaded curtains. The beaded curtains are prone to entanglement. When an adult or child plays with or runs through the beaded curtains, the risks of entanglement and strangulation are posed.

    The firm has received two reports of consumers becoming entangled in the curtains. No injuries have been reported.

    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.

    Justice stores sold the beads nationwide and online at www.shopjustice.com from August 2010 through March 2011 for approximately $20. They were made in China.

    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled curtains and return them to any Justice store for a full refund.
