Graco car seat recallChild Seat Webbing May Tear Under Load

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warns that a child that is not adequately restrained in a crash has an increased risk of an injury. Graco was first notified an apparent testing failure on March 29, 2016. Graco’s investigation to date has concluded that the testing failures are associated with a single batch of sewn webbing. After further discussion with NHTSA, and a meeting on May 3, 2017, Graco has decided to conduct a safety recall to remedy that batch of sewn webbing. Graco will continue its investigation to ensure that the scope of the recall is appropriate.

Graco Children’s Products Inc. (Graco) is recalling certain Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints, models 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334. 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 (FMVSS) number 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”

Remedy

Graco will notify owners, and dealers will provide consumers with a replacement harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 17, 2017. Owners may contact Graco customer service at 1-800-345-4109.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
