The recall affects 2.9 million vehicles made by the three auto manufacturers. Honda issued a recall of two million cars, Nissan issued a recall of 755,000 cars and Mazda issued a recall of 160,000 cars, reports The Wall Street Journal.
This new series of recalls comes after Toyota Motors (TM) issued a similar recall earlier this month over Takata airbags. In the Toyota recall, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that a crash could cause the airbags to send metal shrapnel into face of a person in the passenger seat, WSJ notes.
“We will aim to further strengthen our quality control system and work united as a company to prevent problems from happening again,” Shigehisa Takada, CEO of Takata, told Reuters.
