Gas generators for airbags, including those installed in General Motors vehicles, are supplied by ARC Automotive Inc. The Associated Press writes that NHTSA requires ARC to recall all products, approximately 67 million inflators, citing the facts of the consequences: In the US and Canada, there were seven injuries and two deaths at Chevrolet, Kia, Chrysler, Hyundai and Volkswagen. .

The inflator maker disagrees with the allegations, arguing that the problem is not with its product, but with studying “separate production processes.”
