LaJobi Has Recalled Cribs

Edison, N.J.  (SafetyAlerts) - LaJobi Industries Inc. has recalled about 400 "Molly" and "Betsy" style wooden cribs. These cribs have cut-outs in the end panels that allow young children to get their heads entrapped, resulting in strangulation. The cribs fail to meet CPSC's standards.

LaJobi has not received any reports of injuries involving these cribs but in the past there have been deaths reported in other firms' cribs with end panel cut-outs. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Both cribs have openings on each end panel. 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. The model numbers are printed inside the headboard at the bottom.

Juvenile specialty stores nationwide sold the cribs between May 2000 through September 2001 for about $700 for the Molly model and $650 for the Betsy model.

Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately and contact LaJobi to receive replacement end panels. Consumers can contact LaJobi at (888) 266-2848 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
