Honda said Wednesday that it was expanding its recall of drivers side air bags to all 50 U.S. states.
The Takata airbags can explode with too much force, sending shrapnel into the passenger compartment.
Takata insists that current recalls covering 8 million U.S. cars in high-humidity areas are sufficient, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants the recalls expanded nationwide after some incidents outside the high-humidity zones.
Hondas executive vice president, Rick Schosteck, told House of Representatives lawmakers Wednesday that Honda will expand the regional recall it began in June, but will continue to prioritize high-humidity areas.
Schosteck also said that the company is working with other air bag manufacturers to make sure it has enough parts.
