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.
