At least 23 people have been killed worldwide and hundreds have been injured. Lexus models effected include ES 350, GX 460, IS 250C, IS 350C, IS 250, IS 350 and IS-F.

It's the next step in what has been one of the biggest automotive recalls in USA history, reported the AP. That means 16.7 million faulty inflators out of 50 million under recall have yet to be fixed, so check your cars.
Owners can check to see if their vehicle is affected by the recall at Toyota recall's website, or at Airbag Recall's website. Takata used the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to inflate the air bags.
Because of a defect in the airbag, the Takata inflators can explode with too much force, potentially causing sharp metal fragments to pass through the airbag and spray directly at the driver and passengers, increasing the risk of death or serious injury.
The most unsafe inflators are in areas of the South along the Gulf of Mexico that have high humidity.

The Takata airbag recall continues to impact more auto owners worldwide with Toyota, Scion and Lexus models as the latest vehicles added to the recall.
Dealers will either replace the inflator or the entire airbag assembly.
Takata was forced to file for bankruptcy protection in June 2017 before the firm was acquired by Key Safety Systems in April 2018. Automakers are scheduled to replace 10 million starting this month.
To date, 21 deaths have been reported in Honda Motor Co vehicles and two in Ford vehicles.
Toyota has a search tool on its website where owners can either type in their license plate number or VIN or they can select the model and year of their vehicle to search whether they're impacted by the recall.
