The latest in a years-long series of vehicle recalls related to airbags is now affecting 2 of the most popular vehicles on El Paso roads.

Ford just recalled almost 1 million cars and trucks because the airbags, (made by Takata, not Ford), may explode and fling shrapnel at passengers. According to Marketwatch, they are "the 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, the 2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger, the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, the 2010 and 2011 Mercury Milan, and the 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustang".

The Ford website says:

Millions of vehicles from almost every auto maker are being recalled to replace faulty Takata airbag inflators. Takata has determined that propellant degradation can rupture the airbag inflator. If the airbag is deployed, a ruptured inflator can send parts toward the vehicle occupants, resulting in injury or death.
