You might check Safercar.gov, a website by the National Highway Taransportation Safety Administration. Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
They keep track of every published recall for vehicles in the United States. I first found this site when checking for recalls on Airstream Interstates before I bought mine. As an aside, there was one, for the driver's seatbelt; the swivel mechanism for the seat could pinch the "buckle seatbelt" sensor and cause it to malfunction. It didn't affect mine, though, because the problem was fixed before mine rolled off the factory floor. But it was good to know this before I bought it, so I could check.
It may be that there isn't a recall, exactly, on your trailer hitch receiver. A recall is when they send out notices to the owners and say, "We've had problems with some, so come in and we'll check yours for free, because we don't want anyone else to sue us." More likely, it's just a GM internal policy of, "If someone comes in with a problem, we'll fix it for free, but since so many people don't even use the trailer hitch they have, we won't spend the money to fix it unless they complain."
