Recall of airbags using exploding propellant

Approximately 85 million airbags, which use a propellant similar to that of the defective Takata airbags, are believed to be in use nationwide, a report of stated on April 13. This propellant can cause the airbag to explode and has been linked to several fatal accidents and hundreds of injuries.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a previous recall of 29 million defective airbags is expected to increase by more than 100 million. 53 million of the 85 million airbags lack a drying agent that makes airbags safer in areas with humid weather conditions. Humidity has been found to be a possible factor in the explosion of these airbags. The NHTSA stated that all of the remaining airbags are subject to recall if they later found to be unsafe.
