Takata said it had no comment.A chemical that inflates the air bags can explode with too much force, blowing apart a metal inflator and sending shrapnel into the passenger compartment. Takata bowed to government pressure in May and declared many of the air bags defective, doubling a recall to 33.8 million.A lawsuit filed by Langlinais’ family says a recall notice arrived two days after the crash.
