Recalls: Roman shades, dressings and deli products

The following recalls have been announced:

The recall involves all styles and sizes of Roman shades sold under the Ethan Allen brand name, but they have no labels or markings. The shade’s wholesaler is Ethan Allen Global Inc., of Danbury, Conn. Details: by phone at 888-339-9398; on the Web at
