Pre-lit artificial Christmas tree sold across Canada recalled due fire hazard

Consumers are being told to "immediately unplug" the tree and return it to Home Depot.

Hundreds of pre-lit, artificial Christmas trees that were sold at Home Depot across Canada are being recalled due to potential fire and burn hazards.

Health Canada says consumers should stop using the Home Decorators Collection 7.5 foot Grand Duchess Balsam Fir tree with 5000 Colour Changing Lights.

The recall states the product is being pulled because the tree’s "control panel or electrical cord plug may overheat, posing a burn or fire hazard." 

The tree has only been sold in Canada and it can be identified by the model number, 23LE61001, and article number, 1001803629.

Home Depot says 883 of the trees were sold in Canada between October and November of this year.
