Faulty Takata airbags prompt Toyota recall

There are 247,000 Toyota vehicles in the U.S. equipped with potentially dangerous Takata-brand airbags, according to a CNBC 25 article. As a safety measure, Toyota has issued a recall of these vehicles.

Reports said Takata airbags were installed in the front seat passengers of certain Toyota SUV, pickup trucks and car models. The defective airbags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), may explode and shoot off metal fragments from the damaged inflators. Toyota and several automakers issued regional recalls, as the defect may be related to high humidity. Takata recently informed Toyota that some of the inflators reportedly malfunctioned in their conducted tests. Though Toyota dealers will fix the problem, front seat passenger airbags will be temporarily disabled, as replacement parts may not have arrived yet.
