    Graco Children's Products is recalling more than 25,000 car seats because the harness webbing can break in a crash and may not keep children restrained.

    The recall affects certain My Ride 65 convertible seats made on July 22, 2014 with a code of 2014/06 on a tag that's on the webbing.

    The model numbers affected are: 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015, and 1794334.

    The car seats were sold nationwide and cost between $119 to $199.

    Documents posted Wednesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say that agency tests discovered the webbing strength problem. Graco traced the problem to a single batch of webbing.

    Despite all the warnings for parents to secure their children in car seats, the message does not seem to be getting through to everyone. Researchers at Brighham and Women's Hospital in Boston say they are shocked by how many children are killed in crashes because of not being properly restrained.

    Graco says in documents that it will notify owners and dealers will provide a replacement harness free of charge. The recall is expected to start on July 17. Graco says customers waiting for a replacement part may continue to use the seat.
