Honda Civic Recall, Honda CR-V Recall, Honda Odyssey Recall; Deadly Air Bag Dangers

Deadly Air Bag Defect Triggers Recall
for Honda Civic, CR-V and Odyssey
Report Receipt Date: APR 11, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V132000 
Component(s): AIR BAGS 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 561,422 

SUMMARY:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2001-2003 Civic, model year 2002-2003 CR-V, and model year 2002 Odyssey vehicles to address a safety defect in the passenger side frontal air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants.
