RECALL: Easy Bake Ovens

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro Inc. in Rhode Island, is recalling 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens for repair due to entrapment and burn hazards. The company has received 29 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven’s opening, including five reports of burns. The oven is a purple and pink plastic oven that resembles a kitchen range with four burners on top and a front-loading oven. “Easy Bake” is printed on the front of the oven. Model number 65805 and “Hasbro” are stamped into the plastic on the back of the oven. The Easy Bake Oven is an electric toy.
Ovens sold before May 2006 are not included in this recall. The ovens in question were sold at Toys "R" Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide from May 2006 through February 2007 for about $25.
Consumers should contact Easy-Bake between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to receive a free retrofit kit with consumer warning. Caregivers should keep the Easy Bake Oven away from children under eight years of age. For additional information, contact Easy-Bake at 800-601-8418, or visit www.hasbro.com/default.cfm?page=cs_recall

I love that you are posting recalls. When you used to be Today's Parent I use to read the recall list all the time, but then it disappeared. Glad to see it return.
Love the blog, too.
You are my favorite parenting magazine. I hate to miss an issue.
