Posted: Updated:

The safety of airbags gains attention today.

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a public meeting today to discuss airbag inflators made by the Takata Corporation.

More than 20 million inflators used in American-made vehicles have been recalled. The recall happened after the faulty inflators caused the airbags to inflate with too much force, sending metal shards into the faces of drivers and passengers.
