  Circled in red are metal fragments that can propel into vehicle occupants, causing injuries or deaths.

From an article at caranddriver.com, it states that in April, 2013, when Takata first went public with their admission of having defective airbag inflator devices, there were only six vehicle makes identified in the recall, now there are nearly two dozen.

To date, there are "approximately 34 million vehicles potentially affected in the United States, and another 7 million that have been recalled worldwide."

Also, there have been 10 (possibly 11) deaths as a result of Takata's defective inflator devices, and more than 100 injuries throughout the United States.

This is such a serious issue that Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said, "Folks should not drive these vehicles unless they are going straight to a dealer to have them repaired immediately, free of charge."
