At least 23 people have been killed worldwide by the inflators.
Ford says it doesn’t know of any injuries in vehicles included in this recall. Dealers will replace the inflators.
Takata uses the chemical ammonium nitrate to create an explosion to inflate air bags. But it can deteriorate over time due to heat and humidity and explode with too much force, blowing apart a metal canister designed to contain the explosion.
Roughly 37 million vehicles are equipped with approximately 50 million potentially defective Takata air bags. The ongoing recall is occurring in stages through 2020, with the vehicles most likely to be at the most risk of experiencing an explosive air bag failure being recalled first.
