Takata re­call­ing 10M more in­fla­tors

Orlando Sentinel - - BUSINESS -

DETROIT — Takata is re­call­ing 10 mil­lion more front air bag in­fla­tors sold to 14 dif­fer­ent au­tomak­ers be­cause they can ex­plode with too much force and hurl shrap­nel.

The re­call is the last one the bank­rupt com­pany agreed to in a 2015 set­tle­ment with the U.S. safety reg­u­la­tors. It could bring to a close the largest se­ries of au­to­mo­tive re­calls in U.S. his­tory.

The in­fla­tors are part of the 70 mil­lion in the U.S. that Takata was to re­call as part of the agree­ment with Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Ve­hi­cles made by Audi, BMW, Honda, Daim­ler Vans, Fiat Chrysler, Fer­rari, Ford, GM, Mazda, Mit­subishi, Nis­san, Subaru, Toy­ota and Volk­swa­gen are af­fected.
