(CBS News) Some well-known male chefs are getting behind a New Jersey teen’s call for Hasbro to make a gender-neutral Easy-Bake Oven.

Chefs including Manuel Trevino of TV’s “Top Chef” and Michael Lomonaco of Porterhouse New York are featured in a YouTube video applauding McKenna Pope’s online petition, which had reached about 40,000 signatures as of Tuesday on the website Change.org.

The 13-year-old 8th-grader from Garfield, N.J., started the petition when she went to buy an Easy-Bake Oven for her 4-year-old-brother, Gavyn Boscio, but discovered it comes only in purple and pink. She wants Pawtucket, R.I.-based Hasbro to feature boys on the box of the toy and to make it in gender-neutral colors.
