In general, consumers have a reasonable expectation that the everyday products that they use will not harm them. Airbag maker Takata recently announced that it is nearly doubling its recall of defective airbags. The already expansive recall will now hold the title of the most significant and largest auto recall in history. The expanded recall now impacts almost one in seven automobiles in the United States. The company previously recalled approximately 18 million vehicles for the auto defect and the recently announced additions will increase the number of airbags recalled to approximately 34 million vehicles. Many different models of vehicles, primarily built from 2000 to 2011, are impacted.
