The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Ace Bayou Corporation have announced the voluntary recall of 2.2. million bean bag chairs, after two children suffocated.

The USCPSC says the zippers on the 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 recalled chairs come in several colors, shapes, and sizes.

They were sold at a number of stores, including Walmart, Walmart.com, and Amazon.com before July 2013.

Consumers should check their bean bag chairs for any zippers that can open, and take those that can open away from children.

You can then contact Ace Bayou for a free repair kit.
