The reason for the recall is that young kids can get their hands or fingers trapped in the front opening of the oven. This is very dangerous as it can cause burns or even something more severe, as in the case of the 5 year old girl who required a partial finger amputation!
Hasbro had previously announced a repair program in February of this year, but since then had received 249 reports of child injuries.
If your Easy Bake Oven is a front loading pink and purple model with "Easy Bake" printed on top and, model number 65805 and "Hasbro" stamped into the plastic on the back of the oven, please contact Easy-Bake at (800) 601-8418, or visit www.easybake.com for instructions on how to return the Easy Bake Oven in exchange for a gift voucher good for another Hasbro purchase.
