Graco recalls car seats; webbing may not hold child in crash

Graco announced the recall of more than 25,000 auto seats because webbing did not meet federal requirements in crash tests.

The model numbers affected are: 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334.

According to the NHTSA Safety Recall Report, the seats have code 2014/06 on a tag on the harness webbing.

Due to the My Ride 65 products possibly not properly restraining children during an accident, it will be be fixed by Graco. "During a test of the individual harness restraint component, the webbing on certain My Ride 65 convertible vehicle seats did not meet federal requirements for breaking strength". The Atlanta-based company said it will notify owners and dealers will be instructed to provide a replacement harness free of charge. Graco, a subsidiary of Newell Brands Inc (NYSE:NWL), will start sending out the new harnesses on July 17, 2017.

The 25,494 Graco My Ride 65 seats recalled were produced between May and August 2014.

If your model meets the recall requirement, owners can contact Graco consumer services at 1-800-345-4109.
