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.

wow, instead of spending so much money saving kids from themselves, y not spend all the money trying to give parents common sense. If parents learn, their kids will learn. its a chain effect.

I absolutely LOVED my easy bake oven....it inspired me to want to be a chef. Although daddy kinda squashed that aspiration, but I still love to cook and bake.
