"A child that is not adequately restrained in a crash has an increased risk of an injury".

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

Owners of the My Ride 65 model will be notified and be provided a replacement kit with new harness restraints and installation instructions free of charge, Graco said in a statement.

Chris Cornell to be laid to rest in Los Angeles on Friday
Chris Cornell was found unresponsive in a hotel room bathroom just hours after his final performance. The medical examiner from Wayne County recently confirmed that Cornell committed suicide by hanging.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration prompted the recall, saying that the harness webbing could tear and fail. Infant-seat models covered by the recall issued Tuesday, July 1, 2014, include the SnugRide, SnugRide Classic Connect (including Classic Connect 30 and 35), SnugRide 30, SnugRide 35, SnugRide Click Connect 40, and Aprica A30. Graco traced the problem to a single batch of webbing. The company is expected to begin the recall July 17, once replacement harnesses have been manufactured. The recall, which applies only to the harness restraint and not the entire vehicle seat, will begin July 17, the company said.
