Product Recall: Easy-Bake Ovens

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro, Inc. have announced a voluntary recall of Easy-Bake ovens. Since a repair program was announced in February, there have been 249 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven's front opening. 77 kids have been burned, with one burn so serious it required a partial finger amputation to a five year old girl.

About 1 million of these ovens have been sold at retailers nationwide, including Toys "R" Us, Wal-Mart, Target and KB Toys. They were sold for about $25 each from May 2006 through July 2007.

The model being recalled is a purple and pink plastic oven that resembles a kitchen range with four burners on top. The oven is front-loading and "Easy Bake" is printed on the front. Model number 65805 and "Hasbro" are stamped into the plastic on the rear of the oven. The recall includes ovens with the retrofit kit, but not oven sold prior to May 2006.

If your child has this oven, you should discontinue use immediately and call Easy-Bay for instructions on how to return it for a voucher for another Hasbro product. For more information, contact Easy-Bake at (800) 601-8418 anytime, or visit their Web site.
