Graco is recalling 25,000 car seats because the webbing may break in an accident and fail to restrain a child.

The webbing in Graco My Ride 65 seats produced between May and August 2014 failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, CNN reported. The flaw was found during agency testing.

Model numbers included are 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015 and 1794334 for units that have a webbing code tag reading 2014/6.

Replacement harnesses are being manufactured and are expected to be available free to consumers starting July 17.

“While waiting for a replacement kit, consumers may continue to use My Ride 65 convertible car seats,” Newell Brands spokeswoman Daniel Clark said, CNN reported. Newell Brands owns Graco.

If affected by the recall, Graco consumer services can be contacted at 1-800-345-4109.

Twitter users were upset about the news.
