The Japanese company Takata admitted that its airbags were defective and agreed to double the number of vehicles recalled in the United States, to nearly 34 million – or about one in seven of the more than 250 million vehicles on American roads – making it the largest automotive recall in American history. Takata is one of the largest suppliers of airbags in the world. The airbags can explode violently when they deploy, sending shrapnel flying into a car’s passenger compartment. Six deaths and more than 100 injuries have been linked to the flaw.
