Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because some airbag inflators may have been assembled with insufficient propellant components which, over a period of time, can result in the propellant being broken into small pieces, thus increasing its surface area. During airbag deployment, this increased surface area of propellant can cause an excessive inflator pressure. If the inflator pressure is too high the inflator case may rupture and metal fragments can pass through the airbag cushion material.
