(Newser) – More than two million Ace Bayou bean bag chairs are being recalled after the company says two children died inside the cushy seats. A 13-year-old Texas boy and a 3-year-old girl in Kentucky are both suspected of opening the chair's zippers and climbing inside, where they were found suffocated, Reuters reports. It is also possible for children to choke on the foam beads found inside, the company says. Up until July of last year, the chairs were selling for up to $100 from Walmart, Wayfair, Amazon.com, and other retailers, according to CBS News. The company is offering customers a free kit to permanently disable a chair's zipper.
