Menards Recalls Trees Because Of Fire Hazard

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (CBS) - Menards is recalling 1,800 pre-lit artificial Christmas trees because the lights may overheat, start a fire or cause an electric shock.

The U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission says the artificial trees were sold for about $300 exclusively at Menards stores between September and November.

It's called the "Twinkling Pine" artificial tree sold under the Enchanted Forest brand.

They were made in China and imported by Seasonal Specialties LLC.

The recalled trees are over 7 feet tall and have hundreds of champagne-colored light-emitting diode lights.

The model number for the recalled tree is 287-1261 and its UPC code is 741895425478. Both numbers are printed on the box and on a red tag attached to a tree branch.

The Eau Claire based Menards says it has two reports of incidents where the light strings overheated.

Customers should unplug the tree immediately and return it to Menards for a refund.
