Ford Motor Company has placed a recall on more than 953,000 vehicles worldwide to replace the Takata airbag that can explode and shoot shrapnel all over the place.

The recall includes 782,000 U.S. vehicles and is one of the biggest recalls in U.S. history. 

If you have any of the following cars, take them in to see if they are part of the recall:

2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX
2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger
2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ
2010 and 2011 Mercury Milan
2010 to 2014 Ford Mustang


Some of the recalls may be limited to specific geographic areas of the U.S. At least 23 people have been killed worldwide by the inflators.

Takata uses the chemical ammonium nitrate to create an explosion to inflate air bags. But it can deteriorate over time due to heat and humidity and explode with too much force, blowing apart a metal canister designed to contain the explosion.

Takata recalls are being phased in through 2020.
