The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Child Seat Recall Campaign Listing
March 2002 through March 6, 2012
I was checking out this site today and the manufacturer's of the child seat state that they will contact the owners of the child seat to make them aware of any recalls. But if the child seat was passed over to a friend, purchased at a yard sale, moved and no forwarding address, etc., then the newest owner of the child seat would never receive a notice of the recall. So this prompted me to provide the link. If you or someone you know has a child seat, they can check out the site and verify their child seat is not listed in a recall.
The most recent recall was published on January 27, 2012.
