Graco is an American company that manufactures baby products. It’s based in North Carolina and is owned and operated by Newell Brands. It has produced thousands of different products since its inception in 1942. Recently, Graco needed to recall more than 25,000 car seats after a defect was found in the child safety product.
Out of all things that should be safe to use, a product meant to keep children safe should be at the top of the list. Car seats keep kids safe from birth until age 13 in the event of a car accident. However, the Graco product My Ride 65 failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The agency found that any children who were not appropriately restrained would be at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The My Ride 65 seats recalled were produced between May and August 2014, including the following model numbers:
Seats with a webbing code tag of 2014/06 are affected. If you are affected and are waiting for a replacement kit, you should continue to use the My Ride 65 convertible car seat or buy a replacement. Do not forgo using a car seat for your child.
