A Christmas tree recall is being issued for artificial, pre-lit trees sold exclusively by Menards. The “Twinkling Pine” pre-lit artificial Christmas trees’ lights have been reported to be “overheating, melting or smoking”.

So far, no injuries have been reported, but consumers are being instructed to unplug their trees immediately. The trees can be immediately returned to Menards for a full refund. These particular trees retailed for $300 in stores and online at between September and November 2013.

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.
