TRW-made circuits to be replaced in air bag vehicle recall: NHTSA

(Reuters) - The remedy in the latest U.S. vehicle recall announced on Saturday involves replacing the entire air bag module, including circuits manufactured by TRW automotive holdings, the head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind told reporters the recall was prompted by 400 reported inadvertent air bag deployments. The incidents had caused some minor injuries, but there were no known fatalities, he said.
