We’re far removed from Christmas, and worrying about decor used in the lead-up to the holiday could thus be the furthest thing from your mind. But when recalls get issued in regard to holiday items, it’s important that you take care of the issue the moment you hear about it. If you wait, you might forget, and suddenly that defective item you swore you would bring back for repairs gets put up in your house.
Don’t let that happen to you. If you’re one of the 700 potential owners of the following recalled item, take action at once.
Pre-lit artificial Christmas trees with clear or multi-colored lights have been recalled by the Redwood City-based Balsam Hill. The trees come in various sizes and models, but each will have a date code of H1203. They were available from the Balsam Hill website between last July and December for between $1,250 to $3,550.
The firm has been the recipient of ten reports detailing how the remote control receiver box on the tree overheated to the point where melting occurred. Thankfully, no one was injured in those incidents. To make sure other consumers are protected from the burn and shock threat, consumers should get in touch with Balsam Hill at once. The company will issue replacement components to such persons.
