Easy-Bake Ovens Recalled

Some 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens are being recalled by Hasbro.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says kids can get their hands or fingers caught in the toys, and perhaps, suffer burns.

The agency says there have been 29 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven's opening, including five reports of burns.

The CPSC's Julie Vallese discussed the recall with co-anchor Julie Chen on The Early Show Tuesday. To watch the segment, .

The Easy-Bake Oven is a purple and pink plastic oven that resembles a kitchen range, with four burners on top and a front-loading oven. "Easy Bake" is printed on the front of the oven. Model number 65805 and "Hasbro" are stamped into the plastic on the back of the oven.

The CPSS points out that the oven is an electric toy and isn't recommended for kids under eight-years-old.

Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide sold the ovens in question from May 2006 through February 2007, for about $25. Ovens sold before May 2006 aren't included in the recall.

Consumers should contact Easy-Bake between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET, seven days a week to receive a free retrofit kit with consumer warning.
