The move announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday would be the largest product recall of any kind in U.S. history. The Tylenol recall in 1982 was for 31 million bottles.

Takata supplied airbags to all three main American automakers, German automaker BMW, and most of the Japanese manufacturers.
