Ammunition Recall

Presented as a public service, and because my readers are more likely than the average to have such ammunition:

Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling one (1) lot of its 5.56mm M855 62 Grain PENE centerfire rifle ammunition.
Symbol Number: ZGQ3308
Lot Number: WCC10M106-004
Through extensive evaluation Winchester has determined the above lot of 5.56mm M855 ammunition may contain incorrect propellant. Incorrect propellant in this ammunition may cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable, and subject the shooter or bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury when fired.
DO NOT USE WINCHESTER® SYMBOL NUMBER ZGQ3308 LOT NUMBER WCC10M106-004 5.56mm M855 62 GRAIN PENE AMMUNITION. The ammunition Symbol Number and Lot Number are ink stamped on the outside of the 900-round shipping container, and on the outside of the 30-round carton as indicated here:

  1. Is there an easy way to look up ammo from any manufacturer that may have been recalled?

    I seem to recall there is some sort of web sight for checking recalls. I guess I can try google, but if anyone on here happens to know....
