The recall involves eight different model numbers of the "My Ride 65" Graco Car Seat.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration prompted the recall, saying that the harness webbing could tear and fail. The agency found that children who are not appropriately restrained are at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The recall is expected to affect 25,494 units.

For more information on child auto seat safety, contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to their website here.

The webbing could break in a crash and not properly restrain a seated child.
