Just one day after the Christmas holiday this past December, German automotive manufacturer BMW announced a recall of nearly 200,000 vehicles currently on the road in China due to defective airbags supplied by Takata.

Now, a study suggests that not all patients who receive the filters actually need them, meaning they could needlessly be put at an increased risk of complications.
