Easy Bake Recall

Written by dad - 3 Comments

This doesn’t affect us, but it sounds like there’s a potential for serious injury, so I thought I’d post it here…

Hasbro has issued a second recall of Easy-Bake Ovens sold since May 2006. Hasbro actually issued an initial recall back in February due to 29 reports of kids getting their fingers caught in the oven’s opening, resulting in five reported cases of burns. At the time, they offered free reato-fit kits to eliminate the danger. Unfortunately, it seems like the danger still exists, as they have received and additional 249 reports of kids getting their fingers caught, including 77 reports of burns, 16 of which were second or third degree, and one of which required a partial finger amputation in a five year old girl. This recall includes units with the retro-fit kit, so if you have one and responded to the initial recall, you still need to deal with this one.

For more information and to download the recall form, visit the Easy-Bake recall site. Alternatively, you can call (800) 601-8418 for details.

  1. Why not teach your kids how to bake with a real oven? They’ll learn quick enough what not to touch, and with less danger of getting their fingers caught so that the burn is made worse…

    I kid, I kid…

  2. Heh. Yeah, or maybe teach them to cook over open flames. 😉

  3. Cooking over open flames is good too.
