Best Buy stated Thursday that it has received complaints from 68 U.S. residents as well as 36 Canadians about the ovens and fryers overheating. This was in a notice published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Two injuries were reported -- one that involved a child's leg and seven that caused minor property damage.
