Takata recalls 2.7m airbags in US market
Takata will recall an additional 2.7 million airbag inflators in the United States after they concluded they could explode in a crash despite using a chemical additive to ensure their safety. The inflators were made from 2005 through 2012 and installed in vehicles manufactured by Nissan Motor, Mazda Motor and Ford Motor. Takata, which filed for bankruptcy in June, didn’t identify the vehicle models affected in the notice. Some 68 million Takata inflators are already set to be recalled through 2019 because they may explode in a crash and spray vehicle occupants with metal shards.
