Precious Moments Tree Topper Recall

On December 17, 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Precious Moments, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of approximately 4,300 Precious Moments Angel Tree Toppers due to a fire hazard. The tree topper has undersized wiring that can cause the switch assembly to overheat, melt, and potentially start a fire.

The recall affects Precious Moments Angel Tree Toppers vinyl angels that are 10 inches tall with LED lighted wings. The angels are white and holding either a star of a set of bells.

The company has received two reports of the tree toppers overheating. The products were sold at Menards, Shopko, and Blain’s Farm and Fleet store nationwide from August 2009 through December 2009.

Consumers should stop using the tree toppers immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
