A voluntary recall for the popular pink and purple plastic ovens, which looks like a kitchen stove, was first issued in February after children got their hands stuck in the front opening. Hasbro offered a repair kit to resolve the problem.

The new recall urges consumers to stop using the oven and to contact the company at 1-800-601-8418 for details on how to return it for a voucher toward the purchase of another Hasbro product, the agency said. (Reuters)

      My daughter got this oven when she was 3 and she did get her fingers stuck in it, it was scary. Luckily the oven was not on and she did not get burned. So, it is a very good recall! Julie
