Honda. The Honda car company is recalling over 1 million cars with bad airbag inflators. They are recalling them because they are causing debris to fly out of the blast when the inflators go off, injuring people. This happens because over time, heat causes ammonium nitrate to deteriorate and break apart a metal canister which explodes shrapnel toward the rider. 23 people have been killed by this and hundreds more have been injured. The inflators in the Tuesday recall have desiccant in them which absorbs moisture and keeps the ammonium nitrate stable. They were believed to be safe. The company that makes the inflators is named Takata.
