Toyota, Honda announce additional recalls related to Takata airbag inflators

welcomia/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Two major automakers are expanding their vehicle recalls related to the faulty Takata airbags, according to announcements made on this week by Toyota and Honda.

Toyota added 601,300 additional vehicles in the United States to its safety recall on Tuesday. That came after the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted a notice from Takata on Sunday that said the company would recall more than three million additional airbag inflators.

Honda is recalling an additional 465,000 vehicles. A statement from Honda told customers that the company is “committed to addressing the needs and concerns of our customers with vehicles affected by this issue.”

Takata’s airbag inflators can explode with too much force and potentially hurl shrapnel into the vehicle. At least 20 people have died worldwide in crashes involving the affected inflators.
