Cooking up trouble in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• First Maytag recalled millions of dishwashers. Now Hasbro has recalled about 1 million Easy Bake Ovens. Little bakers are at risk of being burned when hands and fingers get caught in the oven’s opening. Hey, are kids still able to land Creepy Crawlers kits?
• Michigan is joining the debate over trans fats in restaurants. “Protecting the public health is a basic function of government agencies,” said the executive director of the non-profit Center for Science in the Public Interest. “When the federal government moves too slowly, states and cities will sometimes fill the void. That’s what’s happening with trans fats.” Has anyone checked for trans fats in Easy Bake Oven desserts?
