Artificial Christmas trees recalled

About 15,500 artificially lit Christmas trees distributed by GKI Bethlehem Lights and sold by QVC have been recalled, the Associated Press has reported.

The recall involves the 6.5-foot and 7.5-foot Ready Shape Scottsdale Tree with Never Fail Lights, the AP notice said. Model numbers H191953 and H191954 are located on a label on the tree base and on the QVC box. “Bethlehem Lights” is on the box and the instruction sheets.

The base can overheat, posing a fire hazard, the notice said. It said there have been 30 reports of the tree base overheating, melting, or smoking.
