Sounds familiar with that air bag inflators brand.

Horrific. The airbag's sole function is to protect life. Rather just remove it if it is a grenade.

Bear in mind that Takata airbags have saved over 50,000 lives, at a cost of 35.

That's a 99.9% likelihood of one saving you vs a 0.1% chance of death.

Most surgical procedures have worse odds than that.
