Takata airbags contain a calcium sulphate-absorbing propellant that may degrade after long exposure to high humidity and temperatures and could cause a rupture during deployment.

In March 2021, Ford Motor Co. issued a similar safety recall for 275,000 vehicles in Canada, mainly warning of the risks of airbag ruptures.

In the U.S., about 6.2 million vehicles with potentially dangerous airbag inflators remain on U.S. roads.
