takata-airbag-recall-lawsuitMore than 11 million vehicles in the United States and 17 million globally have been recalled for potentially defective Takata air bags. At least four deaths and more than a dozen injuries have been linked to the problem.  The recall in 12 U.S. states and territories with high humidity replaces and expands a recall that began in June 2014, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The airbags in question are in danger of causing shrapnel-generating explosions than can significantly injure a driver or passenger.
