Approximately 1 million Easy-Bake ovens are again being recalled by Hasbro. The ovens were previously recalled in February of this year.
A hazard exists that lets young children insert their hands into the opening in the front of the oven.
Since the recall in February, Easy-Bake has received 249 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven’s opening. There have been 77 reports of burns, 16 of which were reported as second and third-degree burns. 1 report was received of a serious burn that required partial finger amputation to a 5 year old girl.
The Easy-Bake 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. This recall includes all units with the retrofit kit.
The Easy-Bake Oven is an electric toy and is not recommended for children under eight years of age. Ovens sold before May 2006 are not included in this recall.
The toys were manufactured in China and sold at Toys “R” Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide from May 2006 through July 2007 for about $25.
Easy-Bake is recommending that caregivers immediately take the recalled ovens away from children and call Easy-Bake for instructions on how to return it for a voucher towards the purchase of another Hasbro product.
