Easy-Bake Oven Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Hasbro, is voluntarily recalling around 1 million new Easy-Bake Ovens. Children can get there hands caught in the oven’s front opening, which would pose a risk of suffering burns.

A recall for the product was first issued in February to address the problem. Hasbro offered owners of the oven a retrofit kit that was supposed to stop kids from putting their fingers in the oven. Since the repair program, accidents have continued to occur. Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro, has received 249 reports of children getting their hands caught inside the oven. There were 77 reports of burns and 16 children reported having second or third-degree burns. There was one incident where a child was burned so badly, doctors had to amputate part of her finger.

The oven is only intended for children over the age of 8 years old. The oven can reach temperatures of up to 350 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. However, children under 8 years old reported being burned by the oven.

The Easy-Bake Oven is purple and pink and looks like a kitchen range with four burners on top. The name Easy Bake Oven is printed on the top front of the oven and the model number 65805 and “Hasbro” are printed on the back. The recall includes all the ovens with the retrofit from May 2006 to July 2007. The oven is sold in Wal-Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us, Target, and other retailers all over the country.
