The Betesh Group Recalls "John Lennon" Crib Mobiles

Crib mobile recalledNew York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - The Betesh Group said today it is voluntarily recalling about 47,000 "John Lennon" crib mobiles. The screws that connect the mobile's arm assembly and crib clamp can become loose if overtightened. The arms can detach and fall into the crib, injuring the baby inside.

CPSC and The Betesh Group has received seven reports of bumps and scratches to babies after the mobiles attached to their cribs fell on them.

John Lennon Musical Mobiles hang from white wooden dowels that attach to cribs with white clamps. "John LennonTM" and "MADE IN CHINA" is written on the wind-up music box that turns the mobile. The music box plays the song, "Imagine." The mobile has colorful wooden cut-outs of a rhinoceros, two elephants, a giraffe and a bird hanging from yellow ribbons. Below each animal is a round disk with a drawing of the animal it hangs from on the bottom.

Department and specialty stores sold these mobiles from June 1999 through August 2000 for about $39.

Consumers should stop using these mobiles immediately, and call The Betesh Group to receive a free replacement plastic mobile with stuffed animals. For more information, call The Betesh Group at * (212) 686-4666 anytime, or write to: The Betesh Group, One East 33rd Street, New York, NY 10016.
