CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced the following recalls of products made in mainland China.
Comfort Research LLC has recalled about 1,200 bean bag chairs because the zippers on these products can be opened by children who can then crawl inside, become entrapped, and suffocate or choke on the chair’s foam beads. This recall involves Comfort Research’s Ultra Lounge bean bag chair covers. The natural polyester Sherpa, teardrop-shaped bean bag chair covers measure 28 inches by 28 inches by 36 inches and have two zippers on the exterior. The covers were sold without foam bead filling in a DIY package. They have three sewn-in tags: one reads “id COLORS” on the front and “RN48711” on the back, the second has the UPC label code “PO#12991” or “PO#13539” on the front, and the third has the care and use instructions printed on one side and the warning notice on the other.
