Menards Christmas Tree Recall 18 Dec 13

Reports of lights overheating, melting or smoking have prompted the recall of around 1,800 pre-lit, artificial Christmas trees sold exclusively at Menards.

The trees were sold for about $300 at Menards stores between September and November.

The recall is for the 7-and-a-half-foot tall “Twinkling Pine” tree sold under the Enchanted Forest brand and imported by Seasonal Specialties.

The affected trees have model numbers 287-1261.

If you purchased this Twinkling Pine tree you are advised to immediately unplug it and return it to the store for a refund.
