(UNDATED) - Thousands of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the US are being recalled due to a problem with Takata replacement airbags, according to a new report.

Fortune reported Toyota and Lexus issued the new safety recall because those replacement airbags “use a propellant that might rupture the airbag, hurling shrapnel at drivers and passengers.”

The report stated the recall affects about 65,000 vehicles in the United States.
