Car Seat Recalls
Occasionally, a recall is issued for child safety seats. Recalls are sometimes issued for a seat's failure to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213. Other times, a child safety seat manufacturer voluntarily recalls a seat. Most recalls are issued because of issues with crashworthiness, but some are for deviations from standards related to labeling requirements, flammability, or loose parts.
