RECALL: Pre-lit, artificial Christmas trees sold at Menards

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

About 1,800 pre-lit, artificial Christmas trees sold exclusively at Menards have been recalled after two reports of the tree's light strings overheating, melting or smoking.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves the Twinkling Pine pre-lit, artificial Christmas trees sold under the Enchanted Forest brand at Menards. The Christmas trees are green and stand 7 1/2 feet tall. They have 400 champagne-colored, slow-twinkling LED lights and a green metal stand.

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

The trees were sold at Menards stores and online at www.menards.com from September 2013 through November 2013 for about $300. Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the Christmas tree and return it to Menards for a refund.
