New Recall Announced for 5 Million Takata Air Bags

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration expanded its Takata air bag recall to include 5 million more vehicles on Friday, NBC News reported.

The new recall comes after federal regulators confirmed that a 10th death was caused by defective Takata air bags.

The defective air bags can inflate with explosive force in collisions, spraying shrapnel into vehicle cabins.

The latest recall announced includes 1 million vehicles with SDI driver’s side inflators and 4 million with PSDI-5 driver’s side inflators. The vehicles include Mazda, Ford, Audi and Volkswagen.
