More than 25,000 car seats are under recall because the seat webbing may not adequately restrain the child in a crash.
Graco Children’s Products is recalling certain Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints, models 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334. The seats, which were produced in 2014, fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
“A child that is not adequately restrained in a crash has an increased risk of an injury,” a statement reads on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
Graco owners and dealers will be notified about the recall and provided a replacement harness free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 17 when replacement harnesses are available.
Customers who have one of the seats may contact Graco customer service at 1-800-345-4109 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
