Toys R Us is recalling a children's toy toaster set because it poses a choking hazard.

If the plastic toast is put under pressure, it can crack and break into small pieces with sharp edges. No injuries or incidents have been reported.

Parent should take the toy away from their children and return it to any Toys R Us for a full refund.

'Just like home' is printed in white on the front right bottom corner of the toaster. Model number 5F60589 is printed on a white label on the bottom of the toaster and above the UPC bar code in the lower right hand corner of the product packaging.
