In a note on the company's Web site, Tesla said that it would be recalling cars manufactured between May 10, 2013 and June 8, 2013 because "the attachment strength of the mounting bracket for the left hand latch of the second row seat could be weaker than intended."

This is the first recall Tesla has issued for the Model S, and the company noted there have not been any actual customer complaints of the issue, no injuries have been reported, and the regulatory agencies have not brought this to Tesla's attention.
The owners that are affected will be contacted in the next few days. Tesla will pick the car up at the owner's convenience, and a loaner car will be provided if needed.
