Product recalls are in place to protect consumers. Specific parts of a vehicle may not operate properly. Child furniture may be found to be unsafe. There may be unsafe paint used on a toy. These recalls help consumers know that there are protections in place.

Some people register their products and are notified of recalls from that customer registration list. When someone buys a new car, they can register through the company.
