Louisvilel, Ky. (WHAS11) - More than two million bean bag chairs are being recalled after two children unzipped them, crawled inside and suffocated.

One of them was 3-year-old Kylee Simmerman from Lexington. She died at the University of Kentucky Hospital in September 2012.

The other victim was a 13-year-old boy from McKinney, Tex.

The makers of the chairs, Ace Bayou, issued a recall for the zippered bean bags. They were sold at Meijer and Walmart stores before July 2013.

The company is performing free repairs to keep them from unzipping.
