2001 Crib Recall Reissued

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A 2001 recall of dangerous cribs is being reissued today by LaJobi Inc.  The cribs, which have been implicated in the death of an infant, pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard.

This recall involves approximately 400 “Molly” and “Betsy” style wooden cribs. The end panels on the “Molly” style cribs are made of solid wood with openings on both sides. The end panels on the “Betsy” style cribs are constructed with wood slats.

Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately and contact LaJobi to receive replacement end panels which eliminates the hazard.  For additional information, contact LaJobi at (800) 266-2848 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.Lajobi.com.

The model numbers and colors of the “Molly” cribs involved in the recall are:  0101327 02 (Natural),  0101327 11 (Antique Green) and 0101327 12 (Antique White).

The model numbers of the “Betsy” cribs are: 0101257 02 (Natural), 0101257 11 (Antique Green) and 0101257 12 (Antique White).

The model numbers are printed inside the headboard at the bottom.

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), these cribs have cut-outs in the end panels that can allow young children to get their heads entrapped, which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers.  The CPSC is aware of the death of a one-year old girl whose head and neck became entrapped in the headboard cut-out of the “Betsy” style crib in 2003 in Mississippi, following the 2001 recall. No additional incidents or injuries have been reported.

Both cribs were sold at juvenile specialty stores nationwide from May 2000 through September 2001 for about $700 for the Molly model and $650 for the Betsy model. The cribs have not been available at retail since 2001.

This re-issuance is voluntarily being undertaken to both alert consumers who may still have these cribs in their possession and to especially alert thrift stores and other similar second hand stores that these cribs should not be given away, sold or continued to be used.
