Business briefs: Easy Bake Oven recall

The iconic toy, Easy Bake Oven, which has a four-decade history, has been recalled for the second time in less than a year due to reports of children getting their hands and fingers caught in the ovens and suffering injuries including severe burns and one partial amputation. While Hasbro Inc. (HAS) issued a repair kit in February, it is now recalling all front-loading ovens sold since May 2006.
