Norfolk, VA — True Value Hardware Store’s exclusively sold Brookfield Entry Way Tree Sets by General Foam Plastic Corp. are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fire hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on December 23, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the battery box used to power the lights on the artificial wreath can overheat, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves Brookfield entry way decorating sets which include two green artificial 48-inch (4 ft.) trees in black metal vases, one green 24-inch wide wreath and one green 9-foot long garland. The wreath has battery-powered white lights. The trees and the garland plug into wall outlets. ‘True Value,’ ‘True Value Item #136879’ and ‘UPC code 0 29033 36798 0’ are printed on the product’s box,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to return the artificial wreaths to a True Value Hardware store for a full refund.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact General Foam Plastic Corp. toll-free at (855) 277-0085 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit www.genfoam.com.
