The order was issued Thursday by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Edward Markey.

Another twist has taken place in the saga of the biggest vehicle recall in the history of US. It all started when Takata Corp. airbags were found to be defected.

The airbags exploded on collision and sent shrapnel’s through the air. The airbags have been held responsible for eight deaths and 100 injuries.

A total of 11 major automakers such as Ford have recalled millions of their cars with the Takata airbags. A senate panel was also formed to investigate the matter further.

On Thursday two senators ordered Takata Corp. to recall all of their airbags. The airbasg are provided to a number of different car brands. All of the airbags are to be recalled which could reach up to millions of cars.

The order was issued by Senators Richard Blumenthal and Edward Markey. And it is to take place immediately. Both the Senators are Democrats. Both of them also served on the panel which investigated the Takata airbag explosions.

According to the Senators the order has been issued due to the recent June incident. In the incident a Volkwagen Tiguan of the current year 2015 contained a Takata airbag.

The side airbag ruptured in the accident. The Senators believe there is still some danger in new models. Even though 17 million of the old models have been recalled for defective air bags

Federal safety regulators also ordered both Volkswagen and Takata to give more detailed accounts of the accident in June, reported Reuters.

Volkswagen was previously not one of the automakers to have recalled their vehicles due to Takata airbags. Both Volkswagen and Takata were not available for comment on the recent development.
