The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Ace Bayou Corp.have announced the voluntary recall of roughly 2.2 million bean bag chairs following the deaths of two children.

The zippers on the bean bag chairs can be opened, and children have crawled inside, been trapped, and then suffocated or choked on the bean bag chair’s foam beads.

A 13-year-old boy and a 3-year-old-girl died after suffocating from lack of air and inhaling the foam beads.

The recalled bean bag chairs were sold at Meijer, Walmart, and other retailers, as well as online at and before July 2013 for between $30 and $100.

The CPSC says consumers should “check their bean bag chairs for any zippers that can open, take those that can open away from children immediately, and contact Ace Bayou for a free repair kit to permanently disable the zippers so that they cannot be opened.”

Ace Bayou can be contacted on their website or by phone at (855) 751-8151.
