Recall – the mere words strike fear into the hearts and minds of safety-conscious parents everywhere. After all, no one wants to hear that there is a potential problem with their carseat – a product that they’ve entrusted to protect their child’s life. But for child restraint manufacturers, recalls are more than just product issues. Recalls are usually costly and chock full of bad publicity. In short, recalls are bad for business.
But recalls are also a part of the business and almost every manufacturer has to face a recall issue sooner or later. Truthfully, not all recalls are for serious, life-threatening problems although some clearly are.
