Toyota has recalled 1.7 million vehicles globally in order to replace the Takata front passenger airbag inflators.
The announcement made on Wednesday is part of the recall campaign started in 2016 to replace the faulty Takata inflators which have killed at least 23 people and left more than 290 people injured.
The models affected by this recall which relates with vehicles from 2010 -2015 include the Toyota Sienna, 4runner, Corolla and Matrix. The Lexus IS-F, IS 250C, IS 35OC and ES 350 were also affected.
Takata airbags are inflated using ammonium nitrate chemical which is used to create a small explosion that helps inflate the bags. Over time the ammonium nitrate can deteriorate due to high humidity and temperature changes from hot to cold making them explode.
Toyota owners living in the USA can verify the safety of their vehicles by visiting https://www.toyota.com/recall and keying the license plate or the vehicle identification numbers.
Toyota will alert the owners of the vehicles with the faulty inflators before the month ends.
