Takata, under fire from safety regulators over defective airbags linked to at least five fatalities, said it increased production of airbag replacement kitsEmbattled Japanese auto supplier Takata said Monday it will double its production of replacement airbags in the next six months in response to a massive global safety recall. Takata, under fire from safety regulators over defective airbags linked to at least five fatalities, said it increased production of airbag replacement kits from 350,000 per month in December to 450,000 per month currently. "Takata has dramatically increased the production of airbag replacement kits in support of automotive recalls and safety campaigns," the company said. "Takata also is working with other suppliers to further increase the availability of replacement kits for its automotive customers." About 20 million vehicles produced by some of the world's biggest automakers are being recalled due to the risk their Takata-made airbags could deploy with excessive explosive power, spraying potentially fatal shrapnel into the vehicle.
