CPSC, Baseline Design Recall Bean Bag Chair Following Death

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Baseline Design Division of Crain Industries Inc. of Fort Smith, Ark., is voluntarily recalling about 2.5 million bean bag chairs sold nationwide in retail stores from 1990 through 1994. Young children and toddlers can suffocate from inhaling the small pellets of foam filling, if they unzip the bean bag chair.

On September 11, 1994, a 19-month-old toddler of Unionville, Mo., reportedly unzipped the bean bag chair, crawled inside, and suffocated from inhaling the foam filling pellets. Baseline received one other report of a 2 1/2-year-old girl from El Paso, Texas, who survived after inhaling and ingesting the foam pellets, when her older brother reportedly zipped the bean bag chair closed with the child inside.

The recalled chairs sold for about $20.00 at stores such as Walmart, Kmart, Lillian Vernon, and Target. The bean bag, which is meant for adult use, comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and fabrics.

Consumers should stop using these chairs and keep them away from young children. Consumers who find the manufacturer Base Line Design printed on the label of their bean bag chair can call 800-497-3626, ext. 2997 for instructions on returning the bean bag chair free-of-charge to Base Line Design to have the hazard eliminated by retrofitting the chair.
