WASHINGTON – Lots of children have an Easy-Bake Oven or have a friend who has one. Now, Easy-Bake Ovens that have been sold since last May are being recalled because kids can burn their hands on them.
Hasbro says it has received 29 reports of children getting their fingers or hands caught in the oven's opening. Five children have been burned.
Just under 1 million of the ovens are being recalled. They are purple and pink and resemble a kitchen stove with four burners on top and a front-loading oven. The ovens are model number 65805, which is stamped into the plastic on the back.
The recall affects Easy-Bake Ovens sold after May at such retailers as Toys "R" Us, Wal-Mart (WMT), Target (TGT) and K-B Toys.
