Child Restraint Recall List

Updated: October 24, 2014

Note: This list is updated only when new recall notifications are announced by child restraint manufacturers. Users of his list can sign up for automatic email notification of updates to this recall list.


The following lists identify recalls and safety notifications for child restraints (CRs) known by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC) as of the "Updated" date listed above. This list is updated by HSRC as soon as possible after recall notifications are announced. The most recent addition(s) to the list is/are denoted by recent addition.

CRs manufactured before 1981 were not required to be crash tested and must not be used. Most child passenger safety advocates recommend that CRs older than ten years should be replaced by a new one. Note that some manufacturers and safety advocates recommend replacing CRs before 10 years. Models older than ten years and under recall are included on this list but noted by older than 10 years.

CRs are required to have labels indicating the manufacturer, model name and number, and date of manufacture. Model names and numbers are listed for most of the recalls. Model numbers followed by one or more "x" should be read as "model numbers beginning with." If the label is missing on your CR, contact the manufacturer to see if it can be identified through other information. A child restraint should not be used if its recall status cannot be determined because the model name, model number, date of manufacture or manufacturer is not available.

Some of the recalls/notifications for CRs on this list may be more or less date- or lot-specific than what is listed. More detailed information should be obtained through the manufacturer and it is the manufacturer who can make the final determination if a specific CR is subject to recall.

Some of the recall notices are related to problems that do not make the seats unsafe in a crash, but all problems should be corrected. Phone numbers are provided when a corrective action can be taken. The manufacturer should advise you whether to continue using your current CR or to obtain another one until the problem can be corrected.

In cases where the manufacturer has gone out of business or discontinued replacement programs, you are advised to destroy the CR and use another one. Do not throw unsafe models in the trash where they can be picked up and used by others. Discarded CRs should be destroyed by having them crushed. At the least, they should be taken apart and stripped of upholstery, padding and straps to prevent others from using them.

To report any suspected safety seat or vehicle safety defects, contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Auto Safety Hotline (888-327-4236) or submit a report on-line through NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation.
