Tragedy today. Less than four months after its induction into the National Toy Hall of Fame, the Easy-Bake oven takes heat from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The problem? According to Easy-Bake maker Hasbro, "[y]oung children can insert their hands into the oven’s opening and get their hands or fingers caught, posing an entrapment and burn hazard."
The recall affects 985,000 Easy-Bake ovens that retailers sold between May 2006 and February 2007.
