Defective restraint straps have caused a recall of more than 25,000 OXO booster seats.

The stitching on the restraint straps can loosen and separate from the seat, posing a fall hazard to children. OXO received five reports of the stitching coming undone after parents tightened the restraints or when children pulled on the straps.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall affects OXO Nest Booster Seats sold in green (model 6367200), pink (model 6367300), taupe (model 6367500) and orange (model 6367400) with a white base. A sticker affixed to the underside of the seat reads "Nest Booster Seat" with the model number and manufacture date. The manufacture date code represents the month and year in MMYY format. Recalled units include the following codes: 0714, 0814, 0914, 1014, 1114 or 1214.

The booster seats were sold at BuyBuy Baby, Toys "R" Us/Babies "R" Us and independent specialty stores nationwide and online from September 2014 through April 2015 for about $55.

Children should no longer be placed in the Nest booster seats and parents and caregivers should contact OXO for a free repair kit with redesigned safety straps and installation instructions.
