It's official: Toyota will recall 2.27 million vehicles worldwide to correct an airbag trouble, as first reported in April.

Approximately 107,339 vehicles in Canada are affected including certain 2003-2004 Toyota Corolla, Matrix, and Tundra models, certain 2002-2003 Sequoia SUVs, and certain 2002-2003 Lexus SC 430 coupes.

Toyota says these vehicles were equipped with front passenger airbag inflators which could have been assembled with improperly manufactured propellant. As a result, the inflator may rupture and the front passenger airbag may deploy abnormally in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant.

Owners of vehicles subject to this safety recall will soon receive a notification letter by first-class mail.
