The death occurred July 1, and Ford said it was notified in December.

A Mazda Motor Corp spokeswoman said on Thursday the company would conduct a similar recall and stop-drive warning for some 2006 Mazda B-Series trucks, which were built by Ford and are similar to the Ranger.

Both Rangers were equipped with Takata airbag inflators built on the same day.

"Affected owners are urged not to drive these vehicles and to contact Ford immediately to schedule a free fix", a statement from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Ford recommends owners park the trucks and make repairs as soon as possible. The company also will offer loaner vehicles if needed.

"NHTSA is asking the media and the public to help spread the word", the agency said."It's critical that this message reaches all affected owners". "It is extremely important that all high-risk air bags are tracked down and replaced immediately", NHTSA spokeswoman Karen Aldana said. It's the second involving a Ranger and the 21st worldwide due to the faulty air bags.

Takata inflators can explode with excessive force, unleashing metal shrapnel inside cars and trucks and have injured more than 200. The problem brought a criminal conviction and fine against Takata and forced the Japanese company into bankruptcy protection.

The latest recalls cover frontal air bags in certain 2009, 2010 and 2013 vehicles made, Jaguar-Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, and.

Each of the deaths came as the result of inflators manufactured on the same day and installed in 2006 Ranger pickups, Ford said.

Ford urging drivers to fix air. The recall came after the government announced that Joel Knight, 52, of Kershaw, South Carolina, was killed by an inflator. Some owners may have ignored the first recall notice in anticipation of the final fix announced in December, she said.

The latest recalls are part of the largest series of automotive recalls in USA history, with 19 automakers having to recall up to 69 million inflators in 42 million vehicles.

But U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida, whose state has seen three deaths caused by the inflators, said NHTSA has known the Ranger inflators were deadly since the Knight's death in December of 2015. "Plain and simple this is akin to malpractice".
