2001 Recall of Cribs Due to Entrapment and Strangulation Hazards Reissued – Recalled Cribs Could Now Be At Second Hand or Thrift Stores

December 2, 2009 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with LaJobi Inc., of Cranbury, NJ, today announced a voluntary recall of their “Molly” and “Betsy” style wooden cribs.

The end panels on the “Molly” style cribs are made of solid wood with openings on both sides, with the following model numbers:  0101327 02 (Natural); 0101327 11 (Antique Green); and 0101327 12 (Antique White).

The end panels on the “Betsy” style cribs are constructed with wood slats, with the following model numbers:  0101257 02 (Natural); 0101257 11 (Antique Green); and 0101257 12 (Antique White). The model numbers are printed inside the headboard at the bottom.

The cribs are being recalled because they 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.  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.

About 400 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 recall for these cribs was first announced in December 2001, and these cribs have not been available at retail stores since that time.  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.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
