Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves 7-foot tall Artificial Christmas Trees lit by optical fibers in the branches.

The recalled Trees have a base that contains a 60-watt light and a motor that rotates a multi-colored disk that makes the optic fibers in the trees change colors. Recalled trees are white with a silver base and green with a black base.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional brands and/or designs and/or variations of the recalled products are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the motor that turns the color disk can overheat, posing the risk of a fire. Hayneedle has received 20 reports of incidents of smoke and a burning smell coming from the motor. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession a recalled Christmas Tree, please do not use them. Instead, disconnect them from the power source if plugged in and contact Hayneedle for a full refund.
