NEW YORK ( -- Toymaker Hasbro and the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Tuesday recalled 985,000 Easy-Bake toy ovens after finding that kids' hands and fingers can get caught in the oven's opening, thereby posing serious risk of burns.

The CPSC said it has received 29 reports of children getting their hands or fingers caught in the oven's opening, including five reports of burns.

The Easy-Bake Ovens that are being recalled are made of purple and pink plastic and resemble a kitchen range with four burners on top and a front-loading oven.

"Easy Bake" is printed on the front of the toy ovens that were manufactured in China. Model number 65805 and "Hasbro" are stamped into the plastic on the back of the oven.

The CPSC said the Easy Bake Oven is an electric toy and is not recommended for children under 8 years of age.

The ovens, manufactured by Hasbro -- the No. 2 toymaker after Mattel -- were sold at Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide from May 2006 through February 2007, priced at about $25.

Ovens sold before May 2006 are not included in this recall, the agency said.

The CPSC said consumers should contact Easy-Bake between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET to receive a free retrofit kit with consumer warning. Additionally, consumers can contact Easy-Bake at 800-601-8418, or visit Hasbro's Web siteexternal link. For further information, visit the CPSC Web siteexternal link.
