Honda said Wednesday it will expand a recall of autos equipped with defective driver's side air bags made by Japan's Takata Corp. to all 50 states, The Associated Press reported. The announcement comes as Takata, automakers and the nation's auto safety watchdog appear before a House subcommittee to testify about the faulty air bags. Under certain conditions, the air bags can expand with too much force, spewing shrapnel at passengers. They have been linked to at least five deaths, yet Takata has so far declined to broaden the recall nationwide despite a demand from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
