> CPSC Announces Recall of Baseline Design Beanbag Chairs
>
> WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is
> announcing the recall of about 30,000 beanbag chairs manufactured in
> 1999 by Baseline Design, of Linwood, Pa. Some of these beanbag chairs
> have zippers that can be opened, allowing access to the polystyrene
> beads inside the chairs. This poses a suffocation hazard to young
> children who can unzip the chair and inhale the small beads.
>
> Baseline Design is aware of three incidents in which the chairs
> were unzipped freely.  Two of the incidents involved young children who
> were able to open the beanbag chair zippers and handle the small
> polystyrene beads, including one child who received medical attention
> after inhaling the beads.
>
> The recalled beanbag chairs are designed with 12-inch double
> zippers and have various designs, including a smiley face, a football-
> shape, a baseball-shape, a basketball-shape and solid green, yellow,
> pink and blue neon colors. The beanbags have a tag that states, in part,
> "Made by Baseline Design."
>
> Wal-Mart stores located in the Northeast U.S. sold the beanbag
> chairs from September 1999 through December 1999 for about $30.
>
> Consumers should check if they can unzip their Baseline Design
> beanbag chairs. If the zippers can be unzipped freely, Baseline Design
> will provide owners with a free replacement beanbag chair with zippers
> that do not open. Consumers should be sure young children cannot use the
> chairs if the zipper can be opened freely and should be sure children
> are not exposed to the beads inside the chair.  For more information and
> instructions, consumers should call Baseline Design at (800) 497-3626,
> Ext. 3046, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit
> the firm's web site at www.foamex.com.
>
> Baseline Design is cooperating with the CPSC and providing
> replacement beanbag chairs to consumers if the zippers can be opened
> freely. The firm previously notified owners of the recalled products
> through newspaper advertisements in the Northeastern U.S. where the
> beanbags were sold.
