WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling nearly 800,000 Cosco, Maxi Cosi and Safety First brand child restraint seats.

A defect in the harness strap causes it to loosen, increasing the risk of a child being injured in a crash.

The recall covers 8 different models of booster, convertible and infant seats.
