Ace Bayou zippered bean bag chairs

Description: March 16, 1995 Release # 95-093 WASHINGTON, D.C. - As part of its ongoing investigation of deaths and injuries associated with zippered bean bag chairs, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today a major cooperative repair program for at least 10 million zippered bean bag chairs.CPSC is aware of 5 deaths and at least 27 other incidents in which children and toddlers have inhaled or ingested the bean bag filling. In some cases, the children unzipped the bean bag cover, crawled inside, and suffocated from inhaling the small pellets of foam filling. In other cases, children choked while playing with escaping, adhering pellets which clogged their mouths and noses.CPSC Chairman Ann Brown said, "I am glad these companies have chosen to work voluntarily with CPSC to avoid risks to children."The following companies are participating in this voluntary corrective action program: COMPANY DISTRIBUTION DATES Ace Bayou Corp.New Orleans, La.(800) 782-2770 1992 through 1994 Ace NoveltyBellvue, Wash.(800) 325-7888 1990 through 1994 American Bean Bag Co.Corona, Calif.(800) 338-8667 1990 through 1994 American Home Furnishings Corp.Ft.
