Logo - TakataTK Global LLC (“Takata”) has determined that an estimated 1,500,000 PSDI-5, SDI non-desiccated driver frontal Air Bag Inflators that contain stabilized ammonium nitrate propellant may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity, temperatures, and temperature cycling. This recall addresses model year 2015 and newer vehicles.

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

Takata will be working with vehicle manufacturers to determine into which vehicles the affected inflators were installed either as original or replacement equipment during service. As this work progresses, numerous vehicle recalls will likely be announced by the impacted vehicle manufacturers. The recall began on January 2, 2019.
