(RNN) - Bean bag chairs connected with two suffocation deaths are being recalled again after only 790 of the 2.2 million sold from 1995 to 2013 were modified to make them safer.
Children can open zippers on the chairs, crawl inside, get trapped and suffocate or choke on foam beads, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday in a recall alert.
In separate occurrences, a 13-year-old boy from McKinney, TX, and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington, KY, were found dead inside the chairs. A 6-year-old boy opened a bean bag and reportedly swallowed foam beads and had beads in his nose.
