Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 1.6 million vehicles worldwide to replace dangerous Takata front passenger air bag inflators.
Takata inflators can explode with too much force, hurling shrapnel into drivers and passengers.
The recall includes 1.4 million vehicles in the U.S. At least 23 people have died from the problem worldwide and hundreds injured.
The recall covers the 2010 through 2016 Jeep Wrangler
SUV, the 2010 Ram 3500 pickup and 4500/5500 Chassis Cab trucks, the 2010 and 2011 Dodge Dakota pickup, the 2010 through 2014 Dodge Challenger muscle car, the 2011 through 2015 Dodge Charger sedan, and the 2010 through 2015 Chrysler 300 sedan.
It's part of the largest series of automotive recalls in U.S. history. About 10 million inflators are being recalled this year. Already Ford, Honda and Toyota have issued recalls in the latest round.

Fiat Chrysler owners will be notified by letter and dealers will replace the inflators with safe ones. The company says it's not aware of any injuries in vehicles involved in this recall, but says it has plenty of replacement parts and is urging people to get the repairs done.
'Recall service is free, we have replacement parts and dealers are ready to help,' Mark Chernoby, FCA's head of safety for North America, said in a statement.
Takata used the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to inflate the air bags. But the chemical can deteriorate over time due to high humidity and cycles from hot temperatures to cold.
The Fiat-Chrysler recall is part of a phased-in replacement of Takata inflators being managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
