Health Canada has re-released its recall of Ace Bayou Corporation bean bag chairs. Chairs sold prior to July 2013 without a permanent zipper closure may allow children to ingest the beads inside the chair, causing a suffocation hazard.
Though Heath Canada has not received any reports related to the chairs, three incidents were reported in the U.S., where a 13-year-old boy and a three-year-old girl both died after inhaling the foam beads inside the chair.
Customers should remove the recalled chair immediately from children. If the exterior zipper can be opened, contact Ace Bayou Corporation to receive a free safety kit.
For further information, customers may contact Ace Bayou Corporation at 1-855-571-8151 from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or via the company's website.
From January 2012 to July 2013, approximately 3,500 were sold in Canada.
