NHTSA Wants Regional Air Bag Recall Expanded  | In Compliance Magazine

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is suggesting that the regional air bag recalls issued previously should be expanded to a national recall. The regional recalls focused on areas with high heat and humidity leading to more than 17 million vehicles being recalled since 2008.

The air bags recalled are produced by Japanese auto supplier, Takata, and supplies a third of the air bags used by the automotive industry. The NHTSA released a statement that “after evaluating a recent incident that involved a failure in a driver’s side air bag inflator outside an area of high absolute humidity” that a national recall is needed.
