U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson Responds to 10th U.S. Death Caused by Faulty Takata Airbag

April 6, 2016

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) issued the following statement in response to a report today that Honda confirmed a 10th U.S. death was caused by a defective Takata airbag.

“Sadly, this is yet another tragic death caused by a product that Takata knew was defective,” said Nelson.  “And it shows that the current recall efforts are just not getting the job done.  Takata and the automakers have to step up their efforts to locate, notify and fix every impacted car as soon as possible — before anyone else dies."
