Bean bags recalled after two children died

Ace Bayou Bean Bag Chair

More than two million bean bag chairs are being recalled following the deaths of two children who suffocated after they crawled inside the chairs.

The recalled Ace Bayou bean bag chairs have two zippers that can be unzipped and opened, including one of the exterior cover and other directly underneath that zipper. They were sold in colors including purple, violet, blue, red, pink, yellow, Kelly green, black, port, navy, lime, royal blue, turquoise, tangerine and 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 18 inches wide by 30 inches deep by 30 inches high. “ACE BAYOU CORP” is printed on a tag sewn into the bean bag chair’s cover seam. They were made in China and sold at Bon-Ton, Meijer, Pamida, School Specialty, Wayfair and Walmart stores and online at Amazon.com, Meijer.com and Walmart.com before July 2013.

A 13-year-old boy from Texas and a 3-year-old from Kentucky died after suffocating from lack of air and inhaling the chair’s foam beans.
