Lighted Christmas Trees sold on QVC being recalled for Fire Danger

Ready Shape Scottsdale Tree with Never Fail Lights stands 6.5-foot tall and 7.5-foot tall models being recalled - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - Around 15,500 artificially lit Christmas trees are being recalled because the tree base could overheat, which might lead to a fire. The distributor, Bethlehem Lights of Taunton, Mass., sold their trees exclusively through QVC. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall today.

The recall was announced after QVC received 30 reports of the tree base overheating, melting, and smoking. The company did not receive any reports of personal injury.

QVC sold the trees between July 2011 and November 2011. The 6.5-foot tree sold for $320 and the 7.5-foot tree sold for $398.

The recalled Ready Shape Scottsdale Tree with Never Fail Lights stands 6.5 feet tall and 7.5 feet tall. The model numbers of the trees are H191953 and H191954. To find the model numbers, consumers can look for a label on the base and on the QVC box that it arrived in. The words “Bethlehem Lights” is printed on the box and on the instructions.

Consumers who have the recalled Christmas tree should unplug it immediately. They can contact QVC to receive a refund for the product. Additionally, QVC will be contacting their customers who purchased these trees through postal mail.
