We apologize in advance, but if you have a Graco My Ride 65 convertible car seat in your back seat, you’re going to need to remove it and install something else. At least until you get a replacement harness from the company.

Over 25,000 of the car seats are being recalled because the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration says they may not adequately restrain a child in the event of a crash.
The following model numbers are affected:

  • 871689
  • 1908152
  • 1813074
  • 1872691
  • 1853478
  • 1877535
  • 1813015
  • 1794334

Graco plans on notifying those who have purchased and registered the seat. Anyone with the seat will be able to receive a free replacement harness.

While the recall won’t technically start until July 17, you can call Graco customer service at 1-800-345-4109 with any questions or concerns.
