Third Degree Burns and Partial Finger Amputation Leads to Easy-Bake Oven Recall

Submitted by jrlaw on Mar 9th, 2009

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Easy Bake Ovens. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.

Name of Product: Easy-Bake Ovens

Units: About 1 million

Manufacturer: Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro, Inc., of Pawtucket, R.I

Hazard: Children can insert their hands into the oven's front opening, and get their hands or fingers caught, posing burn hazards.

Since the repair program announced in February, Easy-Bake has received 249 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven's opening, including 77 reports of burns, 16 of which were reported as second and third-degree burns. Easy-Bake also received one report of a serious burn that required a 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.

Parents and guardians should immediately take the recalled Easy-Bake Oven away from children
