Japanese airbag maker in the biggest U.S. recall ever

Posted on May 20, 2015 4:25 pm under Product Liability

Japanese airbag maker Takata has issued a recall of 33.8 million vehicles across the U.S. to fix faulty airbags that may explode, risking injury and death among drivers and passengers seated in the front row of a vehicle, RT.com reported on May 20.

The recall is said to be the largest in U.S. history, beating J&J’s Tylenol recall from the early 1980s. Unlike Takata’s previous recalls that covered only those vehicles in humid weathers, the American Department of Transportation confirmed that the latest move covers affected vehicles in all U.S. states. The faulty airbags were installed in Toyota and Honda vehicles, among many others.

Currently, six deaths and over a hundred injuries have been linked to this issue.
