The recall affects certain My Ride 65 convertible auto seats that were manufactured during the summer of 2014 and sold in the United States at list prices ranging from $119 to $199.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced Wednesday that the webbing in the Graco My Ride 65 auto seat failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. "A child that is not adequately restrained in a crash has an increased risk of an injury". Model numbers in the affected manufacturing date range that do not have a webbing tag code of 2014/06 are not affected by the recall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall of 25,494 Graco Children's Products Inc.
Expected to start July 17, the recall reportedly comes after the NHTSA discovered the webbing problem through a series of tests. "Graco offered more information in a Facebook post, saying that this recall is "out of an abundance of caution" and that they are notifying customers who may be impacted".
