Synchronized Music and Lighting System Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

January 19, 2016

Seasonal Specialties is issuing a recall for a product designed to make musical Christmas light displays.

The Minnesota company is recalling the Philips Harmonize Synchronized Music and Lighting System Model due to the product's tendency to become overloaded and overheat, posing a fire hazard.

About 2,000 units are included in the announcement.

The product is an electrical control box. When holiday lights are plugged into it, the lights flash to the beat of the music being played through the Harmonize control box.

The control box is approximately 7.5" x 6.5" x 2.5", and is green in color with a gray tinted cover over the controls. A red digital readout is under the cover. The model number MU1402 can be found on a white label wrapped around the plug cord wire.

Consumers could purchase this product at Menard's stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin from August 2015 through November 2015 for about $120.

The firm received two reports of the control unit overheating, melting or smoking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers who are stil using the product should immediately stop using it, unplug it and contact Seasonal Specialties for a prepaid label to return the lighting system for a full refund.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Seasonal Specialties at (800) 763-6177.
