Continental issued recalls for some of its air bag control units due to possible corrosion of the power supply component, resulting in the failure of the unit to deploy during a crash. In some cases, it may accidentally deploy, increasing the risk for injury to the vehicle's occupant. Continental announced it will speak with vehicle manufacturers who have these units in their models, and the manufacturers will contact customers affected by this recall.
