Airbag Malfunction & Recall


(Reuters) – A government plan to recall and replace millions of potentially deadly Takata Corp. air bag inflators could compel other manufacturers to supply automakers with the safety devices, the top U.S auto safety regulator said Sept. 10.
Mark Rosekind, who heads the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, told reporters that his agency will unveil the plan at an Oct. 22 public meeting and predicted the proceedings will increase the focus on providing American car owners with safe replacement parts.
The meeting is part of an enhanced enforcement posture under Rosekind, who took control of NHTSA less than a year ago after critics, including members of Congress, blamed the agency for failing to take action against a series of deadly defects including faulty General Motors Co. ignition switches.
