Over 25,000 Graco car seats are being recalled

Heads up, parents: Graco is recalling over 25,000 car seats due to the discovery that eight convertible car seat models may provide inferior restraint in a car accident. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration determined that children using certain Graco's My Ride 65 car seats may be at greater risk of injury.

"During a test of the individual harness restraint component, the webbing on certain My Ride 65 convertible car seats did not meet federal requirements for breaking strength," was Graco's Facebook statement. "Out of an abundance of caution, Graco is notifying consumers who may be impacted."

If you have a My Ride, you'll want to check immediately. The recalled models are:

  • 1871689
  • 1908152
  • 1813074
  • 1872691
  • 1853478
  • 1877535
  • 1813015
  • 1794334

Graco dealers will provide affected consumers with a free replacement harness according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, with a recall expected to start July 17, 2017.
