Honda Motor Co. recalled another 772,000 Honda and Acura vehicles in the U.S. due to defective front passenger seat airbag inflators. The defective airbag inflators, which were produced by Japanese supplier Takata Corp., have led to an expanded recall affecting a whopping 1.29 million vehicles in the U.S., according to reports. No other regions have been affected by the recall.

The auto company announced the recall expansion Tuesday in the U.S. and said the latest round of recalls included the 2005-2006 Acura MDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2008-2012 Honda Accord, 2006-2011 Honda Civic, 2007-2012 Honda Fit and 2010-2012 Honda Insight, as well as the 2009-2012 Acura TSX, 2011-2012 Acura TSX Wagon, 2010-2012 Acura ZDX, 2010-2012 Honda Crosstour, 2005-2011 Honda CR-V, 2005-2011 Honda Element, 2012 Honda FCX Clarity, 2005-2012 Honda Pilot and 2006-2012 Honda Ridgeline.

Honda started the recall in December 2014 after discovering that the defective airbag inflators would send metal shrapnel into passenger compartments when released during a car crash, which could cause more fatal injuries than the crash itself. The Takata air bag inflators, which are made with chemical ammonium nitrate that causes a small explosion in order to inflate, have already led to the deaths of 10 people and more than 150 injuries in the U.S., Honda said. The number increases to 16 killed and 180 injuries globally.

Worldwide, Honda has reportedly recalled as many as 100 million vehicles involving 17 automakers. Replacements are expected to take years due to how many vehicles are affected by the faulty air bag inflators. 

The auto company also recently recalled roughly 634,000 of its 2011-2016 Odyssey because of defective second-row seats nearly six years after Honda received the first complaint, according to reports. The second row is designed to slide forward, allowing easier access to the third row. However, some Odyssey second row seats have failed to lock back into place when returned to normal position.

People who suspect their Honda or Acura may have defective airbag inflators can take their vehicles to designated dealerships for replacements. Check HERE to find out if an automobile is included in the recall.
