As we swelter in the summer heat, a recall has been issued for more than 100,000 artificial Christmas trees! The Home Depot announced that 100,000 pre-lit artificial trees sold last year have been recalled due to a potential fire hazard. The Home Accents Holiday brand of artificial Christmas trees were sold between June 2019 and December 2019 for between $80 and $360. The affected 7.5-foot and 9-foot trees were outfitted with a metal base stand and a foot pedal controller to turn the lights on and off. Willis Electric, the company that made the electric equipment, issued a recall for the product after reports of the foot pedal overheating, causing burns and fire hazards. The trees affected by the recall were sold exclusively at The Home Depot, so if you purchased an artificial tree somewhere else you’re in the clear. If you purchased a tree at The Home Depot in 2019, you'll want to crawl up into the attic and check the model number (see below). If your tree contains the listed model and SKU numbers, contact Willis Electric by calling 866-210-5958 or visit their website to get more information about a free replacement.
