Christmas trees sold at Home Depot recalled due to fire hazard

(Ottawa) The Home Depot chain is recalling some of its pre-lit artificial Christmas trees because they could pose a fire hazard.

Health Canada has warned consumers in a news release that they should stop using the Home Decorators Collection’s 2.3-meter Grand Duchess Balsam Fir artificial Christmas tree, which is pre-lit with 5,000 color-changing lights.

The federal agency says the Christmas tree’s control panel or power plug could overheat, posing a burn or fire hazard.

According to Home Depot, 883 trees have been sold in Canada, but no incidents or injuries have been reported as of Tuesday.

The affected trees were sold in October and November this year.

Consumers should return them to a Home Depot store to receive a full refund.

The model number of the affected shafts is 23LE61001 and the article number is 1 001 803 629.
