Additional information:

Among the 38 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Daimler Vans USA, LLC (“DVUSA”) has recalled an estimated 43,689 model year 2007-2009 Freightliner and Dodge Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vehicles. The recalled vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled into the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

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