Graco is recalling over 25,000 car seats due to harness webbing that could fail to restrain children in crashes.
The recall includes certain models of the company’s My Ride 65 convertible car seats, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The models include:
The problem with the seats’ webbing was uncovered during mandated testing, according to Graco. The webbing did not meet federal requirements for breaking strength and could tear, according to NHTSA.
The affected car seats were made from May 16, 2014 to Aug. 1, 2014, Graco said.
The company plans to notify consumers affected by the recall and provide replacement kits with new harnesses and installation instructions. Owners can continue to use their car seats while waiting for replacement harnesses, according to Graco.
There have been no injuries associated with the recall, the company said.
Graco is expected to begin sending out replacement kits in July, according to NHTSA.
