The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Ace Bayou Corporation are announcing a voluntary recall of over 2 million bean bag chairs, after two children suffocated to death.

Officials say the recall includes about 2.2 million bean bag chairs. The zippers on the bean bag chairs can reportedly 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 and were sold at several stores, including Wayfair and Walmart and online at Amazon and walmart.com before July 2013.

Consumers should check their bean bag chairs for any zippers that can open, take those that can open away from children and contact Ace Bayou for a free repair kit.
