In a description of the issue, the NHTSA says “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 number 213, ‘Child Restraint Systems.’”

This mean that in the event of a crash, the harness may not be strong enough to restrain a child and could possibly break.

There have been no reported injuries at this time.

Consumers affected can receive a free replacement kit with a new harness by filling out an online replacement form.

If you have any questions, call Graco Customer Service at 1-800-345-4109.
