Approximately six thousand bean bag chairs are being recalled by Powell Company. The Anywhere Lounger Bean Bag Chair is being recalled for suffocation and strangulation hazards.
From the CPSC:
Bean bag chairs without a permanent zipper closure allow young children to unzip, ingest or inhale the small beads inside of the bean bag chair, posing a suffocation and strangulation hazard.
Customers should take the lounger away from young children and inspect to see if the exterior zipper can be opened. If it can be opened, contact Powell Company to receive a free Safety Enhancement Repair Kit.
The bags were sold at furniture stores nationwide including W.S. Badcock, Value City Furniture, and online at www.Groupon.com from June 2012 to February 2013, retailing around $100.
