The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's
Child Seat Recall Campaign Listing

August 2012 through August 10, 2022

This list does not contain recalls that are more than 10 years old.
(Earlier recalls may be viewed by using the options available on the Child Seat Recalls Search page.)

Manufacturers of newer child seats provide “expiration” dates for their seats that typically range from six to eight years from the date it was manufactured. 

Expiration dates are a way for manufacturers to provide consumers with guidance as to the expected “useful” life of their car seat.

To verify the age and expiration date look for the date of manufacture and the expiration date on the child seat or contact the child seat manufacturer for more detailed information.

The most recent recall was published on July 12, 2022.

This listing is managed by the Recall Management Division, Office of Defects Investigation Enforcement, and updated whenever the agency publishes a child seat recall, or when new information is added to a recall record.
