Though there have been at least two deaths and over 100 people injured from recalled airbags, though these airbags still have not been recalled nationwide. Over 11 million vehicles have been recalled with faulty airbags manufactured by the Takata Corporations of Japan. However, Takata has not spread the recall to include all the vehicles that have the faulty airbags installed in them.
After being horribly injured by an airbag that should have saved her life rather than nearly killing her, Stephanie Erdman is suing Honda because they allowed the faulty airbag to remain in her car. She has been joined by Clarence Ditlow who is the leader of the Center for Auto Safety in her efforts to bring this airbag recall to the public eye.
According to Takata, they believe the airbags are more likely to explode in humid climates, therefore, the recall has only been issued to more humid states. However, two of the deaths from these airbags have occurred in states that don’t have the recall in place because they’re not considered humid enough.
Erdman and Ditlow wish to spread awareness of these defective airbags so the recall will be put in place nationwide.
