Defective air bags trigger major consumer-product recall

CFA Institute Financial NewsBrief | May 20, 2015

The U.S. auto-safety regulator has ordered the recall of nearly 34 million vehicles equipped with defective air bags made by auto-supply giant Takata, in what is expected to be the biggest consumer-product recall in U.S. history. Officials say exposure to humidity and other factors cause the air bags to burn hotter than they are supposed to when activated, blasting metal shards toward drivers and passengers. The air bags have been blamed for six deaths and more than 100 injuries. Detroit Free Press (19 May.) The Washington Post (tiered subscription model) (19 May.)
