Graco Children's Products is recalling more than 25,000 car seats because the harness webbing can break in a crash and may not keep children restrained.

The recall affects certain My Ride 65 convertible seats with model numbers:

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

The seats were made on July 22, 2014 and have a code of 2014/06 on a tag that's on the webbing.

Information shared Wednesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that the webbing in the Graco My Ride 65 car seat failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Graco traced the problem to a single batch of webbing.

Graco says in documents that it will notify owners and dealers will provide a replacement harness free of charge, once the replacements have been manufactured.

The recall is expected to start on July 17.
