Easy Bake Oven Recall

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- If your child plays with a new front-loading Easy-Bake Oven, there's a recall that could affect you.

The U-S Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the voluntary recall of about one (m) million Easy-Bake Ovens. The recalled item is made of purple and pink plastic. It resembles a kitchen range with four burners on top and a front-loading oven.

Ovens that were sold before May of 2006 aren't included in the recall.

Consumer Product Safety Commission spokeswoman Julie Vallese (vuh-LEES') says there have been some 250 reports of children getting their fingers caught in the oven, with 77 reports of burns. Sixteen of those burns were third-degree.

Vallese says there was one report of a partial-finger amputation because of a serious burn.

Consumers can call Easy-Bake for instructions on how to return the toy oven for a voucher toward the purchase of another Hasbro product.
