Additional information:

Among the eighteen (18) recalls the NHTSA has announced this July comes news of the following:

Takata Corporation (“Takata”) has determined that an estimated 2,700,000 PSDI-5 driver frontal air bag inflators that use calcium sulfate as a desiccant may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to moderate absolute humidity, temperatures and temperature cycling. These inflators were assembled as part of the frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment, such as after a vehicle crash necessitating replacement of the original air bags. This recall is not for all desiccated PSAN inflators; rather it relates to a subset containing calcium sulfate.

According to the NHTSA, an inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
