Seasonal Specialties recalls pre-lit Christmas trees

The Twinkling Pine pre-lit tree has displayed a tendency to overheat.

Seasonal Specialties is recalling approximately 1,800 units of pre-lit Christmas trees that were sold exclusively at Menards between September and November 2013.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission cited fire, burn and shock hazards due to a tendency for the tree's electrical components to overheat and melt.

Menards has received two reports of overheating, melting or smoking, though no injuries have been reported.

The product in question -- Twinkling Pine, sold under the Enchanted Forrest brand -- measures approximately 7.5 feet tall.
