The owners' manual may lack information on child restraint anchoring

General Motors is recalling 29,647 model year 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks.

The owner's manual may be missing instructions on how to use the tether anchorage and child restraint anchorage systems.

As such, the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems."

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.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will provide a corrected insert for the owners manual, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 17307.
