WASHINGTON, D.C. - CPSC, Just Toys Inc. of New York, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 168,000 Quick N' Easy Micro-Bake Cake Sets for Kids , covered baking chambers for microwave ovens that may pose a potential fire hazard.

Just Toys has received at least 175 complaints of Micro-Bake overheating, burning, smoking, or melting inside the microwave oven while baking. In some cases, consumers reported damage to their microwave oven. In one instance, an adult reported burning her hands as she attempted to put out the fire while removing the Micro-Bake from her microwave.

Just Toys modified the cake set beginning on Nov. 7, 1994, to prevent overheating and burning. The company will exchange all Micro Bake cake sets produced prior to Nov. 7 for a new one free of charge.

The cake baking set, marketed for children ages eight and older and designed for use in home microwave ovens, includes an enclosed, white plastic baking chamber that holds a small metal cake pan.The Micro-Bake sets sold nationwide for about $20 in toy and discount stores beginning in August 1994.
