Despite more than 28 million Takata airbag inflators being recalled in the U.S., some automakers are still using them in new cars.

These are bags with propellant known to degrade over time, which can lead to the airbags rupturing at excessive force in a crash and spewing the car's occupants with shrapnel. So far, 10 people in the U.S. have died as a result of these ruptured airbags and more than 100 people have been injured.
