DETROIT (AP) – Toyota is recalling about 5.8 million vehicles in Japan, Europe, China and other countries to replace potentially deadly Takata air bag inflators.
The company says it knows of one person injured in a crash involving one of the vehicles, but a spokesman didn’t know where the crash happened.
Toyota says it hasn’t determined if the injury was caused by a ruptured inflator.
The vehicles have inflators that can rupture and spew shrapnel. U.S. vehicles with the same inflators are already under recall.
Toyota says the recall brings to 23.1 million the total number of vehicles it has recalled worldwide to fix inflators.
Authorities say as many as 16 deaths worldwide have been linked to Takata. Seventeen automakers are recalling about 69 million inflators in the U.S. and 100 million worldwide.
NHTSA has a website dedicated to the Takata recalls.
The following Toyota models have been recalled:
2010-2011 Toyota 4Runner
2003-2011 Toyota Corolla
2003-2008 Toyota Corolla Matrix
2009-2011 Toyota Matrix
