Ford ordered to recall 3 million cars over air bag issues

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on Tuesday ordered Ford Motor Co. and Mazda Motor Corp. to recall 3 million cars with potentially faulty Takata air bags.

The defective airbags, which were known to explode and hurl shrapnel, caused at least 27 deaths and over 400 injuries worldwide. They prompted the largest auto recall in history, with approximately 100 million vehicles withdrawn globally. Out of the figure, 67 million cars were from the United States.
