FAW recalls 280,000 Mazda6 cars to fix Takata airbags

China's FAW Car Co., a partner of Mazda Motor Corp., is recalling nearly 280,000 Mazda6 cars with defective airbags that Mazda said were supplied by Japanese supplier Takata Corp.

The recall applies to Mazda6 cars produced from 2003-08, China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement on its website.

The quality watchdog said the recall was a supplier-related issue. It said the airbag inflator could be damaged when the airbag opened, and shards could fly out and harm passengers. It did not name the supplier.

A Mazda spokeswoman said they are part of a recall announced in June to replace airbag inflators supplied by Takata, the company at the heart of massive recalls globally involving Japanese, U.S. and European automakers. Mazda is recalling 2 million vehicles globally due to fix the airbags.

A Takata spokesman said the company was unaware of the FAW recall and declined to comment. FAW did not respond to an email seeking comment.
