More than 25000 child car seats recalled due to injury risk

More than 25000 child car seats recalled due to injury risk

The recall affects certain My Ride 65 convertible seats with model numbers 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334.

"These auto seats fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, 'Child Restraint Systems, '" the NHTSA said.

Specifically, eight different models of the Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraints have been recalled as a preemptive measure (no related injuries have been reported yet). Units with a webbing code tag of 2014/06 are affected. The company is expected to begin the recall July 17, once replacement harnesses have been manufactured.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story mistakenly included information about a previous car-seat recall.

Supreme Court Strikes Down 2 North Carolina Congressional Districts
The state voted in new districts in the 2016 elections, with Republicans maintaining their 10-3 advantage in the new districts. Instead, legislative leaders openly boasted they would gerrymander along partisan lines to give Republicans maximum advantage.

Graco's Canadian division is recalling 1,393 vehicle seats with defective harness restraints.

Consumers can contact Graco's customer service department by calling 1-800-345-4109.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration prompted the recall, saying that the harness webbing could tear and fail.
