No injuries have been reported as a result of the defect, the company said.

The seats were sold for $119 to $199. Consumers can continue to use their existing vehicle set while waiting for the replacement kit, the company said. The model impacted is the Graco My Ride 65 convertible child restraint.

Graco said it will contact affected consumers and provide them with free replacement kits to install new harness restraints. The company is expected to begin the recall July 17, once replacement harnesses have been manufactured.
