Among the twenty five (25) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Ferrari North America, IncFerrari North America, Inc. (“Ferrari”), an Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey establishment and a subsidiary of Ferrari NV of Amsterdam, Netherlands (de jure) and Maranello, Emilia-Romagna, Italy (de facto), has recalled an estimated 982 model year 2009-2011 California and 2010-2011 458 Italia vehicles equipped with non-desiccated, passenger frontal air bag inflators containing Phase Stabilized Ammonium Nitrate (“PSAN”) propellant that were used as interim remedy parts for previous Takata recalls marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V007000 reports these Inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high temperature cycling.

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

Ferrari will notify registered owners and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag assembly with an alternate one, including a new non-ammonium nitrate inflator, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service toll-free at 1-201-816-2668 during normal business hours, Eastern Standard Time Monday to Friday. Ferrari’s designation for this recall is 60FL.
