"In the event of a crash, the child seat webbing may not adequately restrain the child" due to a lack of appropriate strength, the agency said in the recall statement.

Graco is recalling the harness restraints on select My Ride 65 convertible auto seats that were manufactured during the summer of 2014 and sold in the U.S.

The National Highway Safety Transportation Administration is warning parents about a safety issue involving Graco vehicle seats. Graco, a subsidiary of Newell Brands Inc (NYSE:NWL), will start sending out the new harnesses on July 17, 2017. Model numbers in the affected manufacturing date range that do not have a webbing tag code of 2014/06 are not affected by the recall.

Graco has said customers will be notified of the recall and dealers will provide consumers with a free replacement harness.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story mistakenly included information about a previous car-seat recall.

Consumers can contact Graco online or by calling 1-800-345-4109.
