Takata Airbag Inflator Recall
The Takata air bag recalls are being expanded and, by December 31, 2019, will include an additional estimated 35-40 million inflators. This is on top of the 28.8 million inflators previously recalled. Prior to this recall expansion, NHTSA and its independent expert reviewed the findings of three independent investigations into the Takata air bag inflator ruptures. The combination of time, high temperature fluctuations, and humidity contribute to the degradation of the propellant in the inflators. This degradation can cause the propellant to burn too quickly, creating more pressure than the inflator can withstand, and in extreme cases causing the inflator to rupture and sends shrapnel through the air bag toward vehicle occupants. The agency is prioritizing the recall of air bag inflators based on the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants.
