Reasons the product is recalled

In some cases, prongs affixing the foil-backed insulation 'blanket' encasing the oven cabinet have failed, causing the insulation under the oven floor to come apart. The floor under the stove may heat up and even scorch the flooring material depending on the type of floor-covering and how long the oven is operating.

The hazards to consumers

Fire/death/burns to body.
