It seems each new month brings new announcements about Takata Corp. motor vehicle air bags. Texas readers surely are aware about the hazards associated with these devices that are so widely used in the automotive industry that nearly every car manufacturer is feeling the effects of the defective part recalls.
As we noted in a previous post, there's a lot of uncertainty about why some bags are failing. What is known is that faulty bags have been the source of flying shrapnel that has resulted in the deaths of at least 10 people, nine of them in the U.S. They're also blamed for injuring more than 100 people.
