Graco Children’s Products is recalling more than 25,000 car seats due to harness webbing that can break in a crash and may not keep children restrained.
The recall affects only certain Graco My Ride 65 convertible seats, those with model numbers 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334. The seats were made on July 22, 2014, and have a code of 2014/06 on a tag that’s on the webbing.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that agency tests discovered the webbing strength problem. Graco traced the problem to a single batch of webbing used in the Graco My Ride 65 convertible seats.
Graco plans to notify owners and dealers will provide a replacement harness free of charge. The recall is expected to start on July 17.
