China Daily (Hong Kong) - - MOTORING -

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.
