Takata is slated to recall another 35 million or more air bag inflators at risk of rupturing and injuring passengers, Dow Jones reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The Japanese supplier has already recalled 28.8 million inflators in the U.S. affecting roughly 24 million vehicles. The devices are linked to numerous deaths and injuries.

American regulators, who have deemed the inflators a safety risk, could announce the recall as soon as this week, Dow Jones reported.
