Honda Motor Co HNDAF 1.63% and Daihatsu Motor Co DHTMF 6.20% said Thursday they would recall more than 5 million cars to replace potentially fatal air bag inflators made by Japan’s Takata Corp TKTDY -2.87% , already at the center of one of the biggest automotive recalls to date.

The recalls come a day after Toyota Motor Corp TOYOF 0.00% and Nissan Motor Co NSANY 0.89% said they were taking back some 6.5 million vehicles worldwide after investigations showed the Takata airbag inflators were not properly sealed and could therefore be damaged by moisture.

Honda, Toyota and Nissan said the recalls were precautionary and that no accidents or injuries had been reported.
