Graco is recalling 26,887 My Ride 65 convertible car seats across Canada and the United States due to a defective restraint harness. A recent test of the restraint harness revealed that the restraint’s webbing does not meet safety codes in both Canada and the U.S., thus increasing the risk of injury to a child in the event of a crash.
1,393 units of the affected products were sold in Canada and 25,494 were sold in the United States, between May and August 2014.
In Canada, the recalled seats have the following model numbers, which can be found on a tag underneath or on the back of the car seat: 1910553, 1910552, and 1910395. In the U.S., the following model numbers are affected: 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015 and 1794334. Only car seats that match these model numbers and have the webbing tag code 2014/06 are affected.
What should you do?
If you have an affected stroller, you can contact Graco online or by calling 1-800-345-4109, and Graco will provide you with a free replacement kit to install new harness restraints. Graco advises that you can continue to use the existing car seat while you wait for your replacement kit.
