Graco Canada is recalling 1,393 car seats for kids with defective restraint harnesses.
The company said a test of the restraint harness showed that certain My Ride 65 convertible car seats do not meet requirements for breaking strength in accordance with Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 213. This includes My Ride 65 convertible car seats sold in Canada that were manufactured between May 14, 2014 and July 30, 2014.
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.
Only seats with specific “webbing tag codes” and dates of manufacture have been recalled. Detailed instructions on how to find the necessary information are included in the company’s safety advisory.
Graco said it is notifying impacted owners and sending out replacement harness kits free of charge. The affected seats are said to be safe to use until the replacement kit arrives.
Consumers can contact Graco online or by calling 1-800-345-4109.
In the U.S., the recall of My Ride 65 car seats affects 25,494 units.
According to Transport Canada’s Motor Vehicle Safety Recalls Database, Graco’s My Ride 65 model has been recalled twice before, once in 2013 and again in 2014.
