The owners of 1.1 million, mostly older Hondas and Acuras are being encouraged to check whether their vehicles are covered by the latest air bag recall.

Honda will be recalling about 1 million older vehicles in the United States and Canada because the Takata driver's air bag inflators that were installed during previous recalls could be risky.

CBS News reported that ammonium nitrate was used by Takata to inflate the air bags. But in some cars, the chemical burned too quickly, causing a blast powerful enough to spray shrapnel.

The type of inflator covered by the recall announced Tuesday "contains substantially more desiccant than other desiccated inflator types, and it appears that the excessive moisture contained in the desiccant introduced humidity into the sealed inflator during assembly, accelerating propellant degradation over time", Honda spokesman Chris Martin said in an email.

The recall covers many Honda and Acura models from 2001 through 2016.

The total number of recalled inflators is now about 21 million in about 12.9 million Honda and Acura vehicles that have been subject to recall for replacing Takata front airbag inflators in the United States, the company said.

Honda says that it has replacement parts available for affected owners, "all from alternate suppliers", and will begin conducting free repairs immediately.
