If you bought an artificial Christmas tree last year, you’ll want to check the model and SKU numbers. About 99,000 trees sold in the United States and 5,100 sold in Canada are being recalled due to a potential fire hazard.

The Home Accents Holiday brand of artificial pine Christmas trees in question were exclusively sold at The Home Depot from June 2019 through December 2019. The voluntary recall, which was issued on July 23, includes 7.5-foot and 9-foot manufactured by Willis Electric, ranging from $80 to $360.

  • Model number W14N0127 with SKU number 1004391988

  • Model number W14N0127 with SKU number 1004147107

  • Model number W14N0157 with SKU number 1004363928

  • Model number W14N0157 with SKU number 1004213736

  • Model number W14N0126 with SKU number 1004363929

  • Model number W14N0126 with SKU number 1004213737

  • Model number W14N0149 with SKU number 1004213744

  • Model number W14N0148 with SKU number 1004213742

The reason for this recall involves an issue with the mode-switching foot-pedal controllers. They can overheat and create a potential burning hazard. You can find the model and SKU numbers on the product label that’s attached to the Christmas tree’s cord.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the mode-switching foot-pedal controllers and contact Willis Electric to receive a replacement foot pedal controller,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission wrote in the alert.
