Vinyl Bean Bag Chairs Recalled Due to Risk of Entrapment and Suffocation
About the Bean Bag Chair Recall
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), zippers on the exteriors of bean bag chairs are too easily accessible to children who can then crawl inside, become entrapped, suffocate or choke on the bean bag chair’s foam beads.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled bean bag chairs away from children and check them for zippers that can be opened.
Consumers then have the option of contacting Comfort Research customer service for instructions on how to permanently disable the zipper.
