Takata adds millions of cars to air bag recall

Posted: Updated:

Takata is expanding the recall for defective air bags.

This time the company is adding 2.7 million cars to their growing list of vehicles with potentially dangerous air bag inflators.

The latest recall affects airbags in Ford, Nissan, and Mazda vehicles built from 2005 through 2012.

The inflators are a new type that was previously thought to be safe.

At least 17 deaths worldwide and more than 180 injuries have been linked to faulty inflators that can explode with too much force.

New details just release by Honda reveal that a man died from an exploding air bag inflator last summer but not because of a crash.

The company said it only recently found out about the man's death.
