WASHINGTON (WEAU) -- A Minnesota company is recalling nearly 1,800 artificial Christmas trees that were sold at Menards.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall on Monday. Seasonal Specialties of Eden Prairie, MN is recalling the Enchanted Forest L.E.D. 7.5 ft. Pre-Lit Twinkling Pine artificial Christmas trees because the electrical parts of the tree’s light strings can overheat and melt. That could pose a fire, burn, or shock hazard to someone. Menards received two reports of the tree’s light strings overheating, melting or smoking. No injuries were reported.
Menards sold the trees in stores and online from September 2013 through November 2013 for about $300. If you have one, the CPSC suggests unplugging it, stop using it, and return it to Menards for a refund.
