Minister for Small Business, Michael McCormack, has today issued a proposed recall notice for a compulsory recall of all vehicles with defective Takata airbags installed, following an ACCC safety investigation.
A number of recalls have been announced in Australia for motor vehicles containing Takata airbags. These recalls affect a large number of car makes and models and a small number of motorcycles and trucks.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is urgently seeking information from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (DIRD) and car manufacturers regarding Takata airbags at the centre of the largest vehicle recall in history.
Decorative alcohol fuelled devices are designed for domestic use and produce a flame using alcohol as fuel. The devices are primarily used for decoration although larger models also may provide heating.
