(WLTX) - About 2.2 million bean bag chairs are being recalled after federal safety experts say two children died from suffocating while using the products.

The chairs are made by Ace Bayou, and were sold at retailers such as Walmart and Amazon before July 2013.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the zippers on the chairs can be opened, allowing children to crawl inside and get trapped, potentially leading to a child suffocating or choking on the beads.

The CPSC says a 13-year-old boy from Texas and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington died after inhaling the chair's foam beads. The commission says both children were found inside the chairs.

The recalled items were sold in a variety of colors, and have two zippers that can be unzipped and opened, including one on the exterior cover.

The round bean bag chairs were sold in three sizes: 30, 32, and 40 inches in diameter. The L-shaped bean bag chair measures 18 inches wide by 30 inches deep by 30 inches high.'Ace Bayou Corp' is printed on a tag sewn into the bean bag chair's cover seam.

People who have the chairs are asked to immediately look and see if they have any zippers that can open. If so, people should immediately contact Ace Bayou for a free repair kit.
