About 25,000 families should check their children's booster seat.

A company called OXO is recalling the Nest Booster Seat because of a potential falling hazard. According to the website of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the stitching on the restraint straps can loosen which allows the straps to separate from the seat. That malfunction could allow a child o fall out of the seat.

The firm has received five reports of the stitching coming undone releasing the straps following a child pulling on the strap or an adult tightening the straps. Luckily, no children have been injured.
