It's been almost two years since a little girl in Lexington crawled into a bean bag and suffocated.

Now her death is one of the reasons that a massive recall was just put out for more than two-million bean bag chairs.

Kylee Mills Simmerman was just three-years old when Lexington Police said she was found unresponsive in her home.

Investigators said she had been playing hide-and-seek when she unzipped the zipper and crawled into one of the bean bag chairs.

Kylee later died at UK Hospital.

Then recently, a 13-year old boy from McKinney, Texas also died after reportedly getting inside one of the chairs.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said that the zippers on the chairs, which are made by Ace Bayou Corp., can open.

The chairs were sold at Bon-Ton, Meijer, Pamida, School Specialty, Wayfair and Walmart stores and online at Amazon.com, Meijer.com and Walmart.com.

They cost between $30 and $100 and were sold before July 2013.

Ace Bayou is offering customers a free repair kit on its website that will stop the zippers from opening.
