Bean Bag Recall Follows the Death of Two Children

Ace Bayou Corp., of New Orleans, Louisiana has announced the voluntary recall of over 2 million bean bag chairs. This recall follows two separate instances in which children crawled inside of the chairs and suffocated. These chairs do not have the industry-standard permanently disabled zipper, an oversight which allowed for these two tragic deaths.

Chairs impacted by this recall are:
  • Round bean bag chairs in 30”, 32”, and 40” diameters
  • 18”x30”x30” L-shaped bean bag chairs
These chairs were sold in a variety of colors and have “ACE BAYOU CORP” printed on a tag that has been sewn into the cover seam. These chairs may have been purchased at Amazon.com, Bon-Ton, Meijer, Pamida, School Specialty, Wayfair, or Walmart before July of 2013.

Child Passenger Safety Week


Auto accidents are the leading cause of death for children ages one to 13. While car accidents themselves cannot always be avoided, fatal injury to children often can – if car seats are installed and used properly.
September 14th marks the start of Child Passenger Safety Week, a campaign designed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to bring awareness to the need for proper car seat use. Many fire and police stations will be hosting events this week to help parents properly install seats and better understand how to use them effectively. If you are uncertain about how well your child’s car seat is installed, taking a few moments this week to seek help may very well save his or her life.
It is important to remember that car seats, seatbelts, and airbags are intended to reduce injury in auto accidents, but they cannot always prevent injury from occurring. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an auto accident, the experienced attorneys at The Cochran Firm are here to take your case and fight for your rights, helping you secure the full compensation you are due.
