Attention everyone who transports kids: we have a car seat recall to announce.
Graco has issued a recall on 25,000 car seats, saying they cannot adequately restrain a child in the event of a crash.
Apparently, the problem is with the webbing on the harness. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall alert, “In the event of a crash, the child seat webbing may not adequately restrain the child. As such, these car seats fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard…”
In a Facebook post, Graco said that they’re issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution, and consumers may continue to use the car seat in the meantime.
The specific car seat model involved is Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints, models 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334. The recalled seats were all manufactured between May 20 - August 1, 2014. Click here to find out how to check your model number.
The good news is that you can contact Graco for a free replacement harness. Just give them a call at 1-800-345-4109 or order one online here.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go check on a car seat of mine.
