The Easy Bake oven, an iconic toy with a four-decade history, has been recalled for the second time in less than a year, government safety advocates announced on Thursday.

In February Easy Bake's parent company, Hasbro Inc., recalled 985,000 of the toys because children were getting their hands and fingers trapped in the front opening, and some were burned. At that time, Hasbro offered a free repair kit to improve the oven's safety.
Since the February announcement, the company has received an additional 249 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the ovens, including 16 reports of second- and third-degree burns. One burn required partial amputation of a 5-year-old girl's finger.

The ovens were removed from store shelves after the February recall, according to Hasbro spokesman Wayne Charness. Stores were alerted Wednesday night to pull any ovens that might have found their way back onto shelves since then.


This really does seem like the year of recalls with the pet-food recalls, toothpaste
recalls and the recent Chili recall.

I never did trust those ovens though.

Oh, and this is another product made in PRChina, so it's their fault in the first place but
also the companies fault for knowingly continuing to use PRChinese labour.

Comments, Opinions?

Damn, and I was just gonna put a little cake in.

I'm really getting sick of all this crap coming out of China, but we only have ourselves to blame. We the people are the ones demanding the cheapest price on every product we buy. And we're the ones that shop at Wal-Mart and the other box stores.

Unions have driven manufacturing out of western nations, so you reap what you sow.

Geez, how do you eff up an Easy Bake Oven? It's a freakin' light bulb in a metal box.

And as far as that chili sauce goes, there's really no meat in it persay. Look at the ingredients, it's gross!
Throw some Wolf brand on your hotdog instead of that crap.
