(Bloomberg) — The U.S. government demanded automakers expand recalls involving faulty Takata Corp. air bags, prompting pushback by the Japanese supplier, which said problems with the devices were limited to humid areas.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration yesterday called for Takata and 10 automakers to repair all cars nationwide with potentially defective driver’s side air bags. Adding to the almost 8 million cars already recalled in the past two years may put “lives at risk” by diverting replacement parts from where they’re needed, Takata said.
