Easy Bake - Easy Burn

Hasbro is recalling the Easy Bake Ovens.

"About 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens sold since last May have been recalled because children can get their hands or fingers caught in the oven’s opening, which poses an entrapment or burn hazard."

"The recalled plastic ovens are purple and pink. They resemble a kitchen stove with four burners on top and a front-loading oven. “Easy Bake” is printed on the front of the electric toy, while “Hasbro” and model number 65805 are stamped into the plastic on the back. The recall does not include Easy-Bake Ovens sold before May 2006. Toys “R” Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide sold the toy from May 2006 through February 2007."

Empasis mine.

hilarious. although they said that when we were kids. "you'll burn the house down" was my moms version of "you'll shoot yer eye out" and that was in reference to the betty crocker easy bake oven of which you speak. funny.

in other news: knives can cut people, and lawyers have been known to be sheisters. just a headsup. no class action suit, as of yet, but i'll keep you in the loop.

Heh. Thanks for the heads up - I think we got rid of ours in the last yard sale, but you never know.

The wee child received one of those for Christmas...

I showed her that article yesterday. She pulled the oven out and we looked at it.

Then she asked: "How is this supposed to burn me?"

I showed her by putting my fingers in the opening.

"Well," she said, "that was stupid, Mommy. I would never do that."
