Air-Bag Recall Expands Again as Maker Finds Part Defect

Updated on

The manufacturer of air bags linked to four deaths made another 30,687 inflators with an incorrect part that can lead to similarly damaging ruptures in newer vehicles, U.S. regulators said, adding to questions about the scope of the defects in Takata Corp. products.

Takata will recall the SDI-X inflators manufactured from June 16, 2008, to June 20, 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said today in a statement on its website. An incorrect outer baffle could cause the unit to rupture, the agency said. Owners will be notified by vehicle manufacturers.
