  • More than 25000 child car seats recalled due to injury risk

The Graco auto seat recall will see the company providing a new harness for owners of the affected products.

Graco Children's Products Inc.

The webbing could break in a crash and not properly restrain a seated child. Consumers can continue to use their existing auto set while waiting for the replacement kit, the company said.

The recall impacts eight models of the Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints. The auto seats' harness webbing did not meet federal safety regulations for breaking strength.


The recall is expected to begin July 17. While waiting for a replacement kit, consumers may continue to use the My Ride 65 convertible vehicle seats.

An estimated 10 percent of the 25,494 seats are estimated to have the defect, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Owners may contact Graco customer service at 1-800-345-4109. They also have the option of visiting www.safercar.gov for more info.

The NHSTA says Graco will notify affected owners. The same year Graco was acquired by Rubbermaid and the company is called Newell Brand.
