Graco Children’s Products is recalling more than 25,000 child car seats, according to a news release.

The company, the release said, is recalling some “My Ride 65” convertible child safety restraints. In the event of a crash, the seat’s webbing may not properly restrain your child, the release said.

The recall is expected to begin July 17. The Atlanta-based company said it will notify owners and dealers will be instructed to provide a replacement harness free of charge.

Consumers can contact Graco’s customer service department by calling 800-345-4109. The seats retail for between $119 and $199, the release said.

There are many numbers and dates on the foods, drugs, cosmetics, and other products we use every day. Some help manufacturers track inventory, while others help retailers ensure quality. But when unsafe products must be removed from the market, these numbers and dates can also help identify them quickly. (Courtesy of U.S. Food and Drug Administration)
