  • One Million Easy-Bake Ovens Recalled

    One million Easy-Bake Ovens have been recalled due to potential burn hazards. Children can insert their fingers into oven’s front opening, and their fingers can then get caught, resulting in burns. There was a repair recall in February, but since then, 77 burns have been reported, and one five-year-old received a burn serious enough to require amputation.

    All ovens with model number 65805 on the back should be returned for a voucher good toward another Hasbro product. To receive a prepaid shipping label, call 800-601-8418 or use this form. Customers who previously contacted Hasbro about the repair recall will automatically be sent a box with prepaid shipping for the return of their Easy-Bake Ovens.

    You can see the official recall notice here.


    1. Uh, maybe I don’t get it b/c I never had one, but WHO gives their small child an OVEN??? This kind of reminds me of the SNL skit where they give kids bags of broken glass.

    2. My parents must have agreed with you, because I always longed for an Easy-Bake Oven when I was growing up and hoped in vain each Christmas. I mean, it’s a miniature oven that lets you cook miniature cakes and cookies – what’s not to love?
