Toys R Us has issued a recalled for over 36,000 Just Like Home Toy Toaster Sets in the US and Canada. The plastic toast doesn’t hold up well under pressure, which presents a hazard for cracking and breaking into small pieces creating sharp edges that are easy for a child to choke on.
No incidences have been reported, but parents are encouraged to take this product away from children and return it to any Toys R Us to receive a full refund.
The recall involves Just Like Home brand toy toaster sets. The teal blue plastic toy toaster has silver trim around the slice opening on top, with an orange slider handle on the side and orange 3-dimensional adjustment knob outlined with orange dots in a half moon shape on the face of the toaster in the left bottom corner. “Just like home” is printed in white on the front right bottom corner of the toaster. The toaster measures about 4 inches in height by 5-1/2 inches in length by 2 inches in width. The toaster set was sold with two plastic toast slices and two plastic half bagel slice accessories. 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. The toaster sets were obtained from Toys R Us stores nationwide and online at www.toysrus.com from July 2013 through August 2014 for about $10.
