Takata has issued a recall for 37 million vehicles that effect 50 million airbags that can explode when deployed causing injuries and even death. There are two major issues with the recall:

  1. Airbags that can kill. Certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles, 2006 Ford Ranger, and Mazda B-Series trucks are at a far higher risk for an air bag explosion that could injure or kill vehicle occupants.
  2. More recalls. Additional air bags are scheduled to be recalled by December 2019, bringing the total number of affected air bags to around 65-70 million.
