What are the defects?

A concern has been identified in the front passenger side air bag inflator.

The propellant wafer for the deployment of the air bag in the front passenger air bag inflator may be partially broken up into powder. This can cause the combustion rate of the propellant to rise and excessive internal pressure may be produced in the inflator during the air bag deployment. In an extreme case, the inflator casing may rupture, and the metal fragments may fracture.
