Toyota is recalling 1.7 million vehicles in North America to replace potentially deadly Takata front passenger air bag inflators. The move announced on Wednesday includes 1.3 million vehicles in the USA and is part of the largest series of automotive recalls in the nation’s history.

Takata inflators can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel into drivers and passengers. At least 23 people have been killed worldwide and hundreds have been injured. Dealers will either replace the inflator or the entire airbag assembly.
