Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall concerns 2.2 million Bean Bag Chairs following the deaths of two children.

According to the CPSC, the zippers on the recalled Bean Bag Chairs can be opened and children can then crawl inside, get trapped and suffocate or choke on the Bean Bag Chair’s foam beads. The voluntary standard requires non-refillable Bean Bag Chairs to have closed and permanently disabled zippers.

A 13-year-old boy from McKinney, Texas died and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington, Kentucky died after suffocating from lack of air and inhaling the Chair’s foam beads. Both children were found inside their respective Bean Bag Chairs.

The recalled Bean Bag Chairs with zippers that open were sold in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and fabrics. They include round or L-shaped, vinyl or fabric, and are filled with small, lightweight, polystyrene foam beads. Please consult the photograph above for details of one variation of the product’s design and presentation.

The Bean Bag Chairs come in a variety of colors ranging from purple, violet, blue, red, pink, yellow, Kelly green, black, port, navy, lime, royal blue, turquoise, tangerine to multi-color. The round Bean Bag Chairs were sold in three sizes: 30, 32 and 40 inches in diameter. The L-shaped Bean Bag Chair measures approximately 18 inches wide by 30 inches deep by 30 inches high. The phrase, “Ace Bayou Corp” is printed on a tag sewn into the Bean Bag Chair’s cover seam. They were made in China.

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.
