The stainless steel trim below the range control panel can have a sharp edge and potentially cut you. There is one report of a consumer getting stitches.

The recall includes the Elite slide-in gas ranges sold May 2014 through April 2015 with model numbers 790.32623xxx, 790.32633xxx, 790.32643xxx, Electric ranges with model numbers 790.42553xxx, 790.42563xxx, 790.42623xxx, and Dual Fuel ranges with model numbers 790.42603xxx and 790.42613xxx.

This can allow gas to escape posing a fire and burn hazard if the user attempts to reignite a flame.
