I Never Thought We’d See a Recall Involving a Beanbag But Here You Go
Following the deaths of two children, 2.2 million bean bag chairs are being recalled. The recalled bean bag chairs have two zippers that can be unzipped and opened.
The zippers on the bean bag chairs can be opened by children who can then crawl inside, get trapped and suffocate or choke on the bean bag chair’s foam beads.
The recalled chairs with zippers that open were sold in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and fabrics, including round or L-shaped chairs that are preferred by video gamers, vinyl or fabric, and are filled with polystyrene foam beads. They were sold in a variety of colors and “ACE BAYOU CORP” is printed on a tag sewn into the bean bag chair’s cover seam.
The recalled bean bag chairs were sold at Pamida and Walmart stores and online at Amazon.com and Walmart.com before July 2013.
If you own one of these beanbags, take them from children immediately and contact Ace Bayou for a free repair kit to permanently disable the zippers so that they cannot be opened. For more information, call Ace Bayou at (855) 751-8151 or visit acebayou.com.
They were made in China.
