Graco is recalling more than 25,000 car seats that might not adequately restrain children during a crash.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced Wednesday that the webbing in the Graco My Ride 65 car seat failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
The 25,494 Graco My Ride 65 seats recalled were produced between May and August 2014. Model numbers include 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015 and 1794334. Units with a webbing code tag of 2014/06 are affected.
“In the event of a serious motor vehicle crash, the harness webbing restraining the child may break resulting in a child not being properly restrained,” the agency noted.
