QCV Artificial Christmas Tree Recall Issued Due to Fire Risk

About 15,500 artificial Christmas trees sold exclusively by QVC have been recalled after multiple reports indicate that the base of the pre-lit tree may overheat, posing a risk of burns or fires. 

A Bethlehem Artificially Lit Christmas Trees recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 26, after at least 30 reports were received of the tree base overheating, melting, or smoking. However, there have been no reports of injuries, fires or property damage.

The reports indicate that the “Never Fail” light assembly at the bottom of the tree may become hot enough to melt the material, which could potentially cause property damage and even start a fire.

The recalled Christmas trees were manufactured in China and distributed to QVC stores by GKI Bethlehem Lights of Taunton, Massachusetts.

The artificial trees come in 6.5 foot and 7.5 foot tall models, with “Never Fail Lights” designed in them. The trees have models numbers H191953 and H191954 that are located on the tree base on the QVC box with Bethlehem Lights on the box and instruction sheets.

All of the recalled trees were sold exclusively at QVC, from July 2011 through November 2011, for $320 for the 6.5-foor tree and $398 for the 7.5-foot tree.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using Christmas trees affected by the recall and contact QVC at (800) 248-1434 to receive a refund or visit www.gkilights.com and navigate to the “Recall Notice.”
