U.S. Field and Lab Incidents

Short of death, there have been hundreds of alleged injuries from defective Takata inflators across 27 U.S. states and territories. In addition, laboratory testing of Takata airbag inflators retrieved from recalled vehicles has identified inflators from 33 U.S. states and territories which, when tested, exploded. The map below shows the broad geographic reach of explosions of defective Takata inflators—illustrating the locations of inflators that have exploded both in vehicles (“field incidents”) and when retrieved and tested in a laboratory (“lab incidents”).
