CPSC, Ace Bayou recall bean bag chairs

More than two million bean bag chairs are recalled following the deaths of two children.

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

Officials say the zippers can be opened and children can then crawl inside.   As a result, the children can get trapped and suffocate or choke on the bean bag chair's foam beads.

The recalled chairs come in several colors, shapes and sizes -- and were sold nationally before July 2013.  They sold for as much as $100.
