Bean Bag Chair Recall Follows Suffocation Deaths of 2 Kids

By    |   Monday, 25 Aug 2014 07:40 AM

After two children opened bean bag chairs, crawled inside and suffocated to death, about 2.2 million chairs made by Ace Bayou Corp are being recalled.

A 13-year-old boy from McKinney, Texas, and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington, Kentucky, were found dead inside the chairs after they suffocated from a lack of air and inhaled the chair's foam beads.

The chairs were sold at Bon-Ton, Meijer, Pamida, School Specialty, Wayfair and Walmart stores and online at Amazon.com, Meijer.com and Walmart.com. They cost between $30 and $100 and were sold before July 2013. They come in all different colors, shapes, fabrics and sizes.

The Associated Press reported the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission as saying Friday that the zippers on the chairs can freely open.

Owners of the bean bag chairs should check if the zippers open and take them away from children if they do, the CPSC said.

Ace Bayou, which is based in New Orleans, is offering customers a free repair kit that will stop the zippers from opening. Customers can order one at acebayou.com.
