Japan’s Takata this month agreed to declare as many as 40 million additional airbag inflators defective by 2019 in a move that will involve recalls by 17 automakers.

TORONTO — Millions more vehicles containing defective Takata Corp. airbags are being recalled, including 400,000 Chrysler vehicles in Canada alone, as the fallout from the largest recall in history continues to spread.

Eight automakers announced Friday that they will recall more than 12 million vehicles in the U.S. to replace the potentially dangerous airbags, which can rupture and blast shrapnel into vehicles.

A total number was not immediately available in Canada, but several automakers confirmed that they will participate.
