NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Under pressure from federal regulators, Chrysler will expand a recall of cars and trucks equipped with Takata airbags.

It will now replace driver’s-side airbags in 3.3 million older-model vehicles worldwide, including 2.9 million in the U.S.

Ten automakers, including Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, have recalled cars and trucks with Tataka airbags because of fears the airbags can explode and send shrapnel into drivers and passengers.

Chrysler emphasized that it is not aware of any problems with the driver-side airbags in the expanded region — even after conducting 1,000 laboratory tests.
