Among the 27 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 29,647 model year 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 Trucks. The owner’s manual for the affected vehicles may be missing instructions on how to use the tether anchorage and child restraint anchorage systems. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 225, “Child Restraint Anchorage Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the instructions are missing from the owner’s manual, the child seat may be installed incorrectly and not be properly secured, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
