Takata Executives Indicted for Manipulating and “XX-ing” Test Data

A federal grand jury in Michigan has indicted three Takata Corp. executives on conspiracy and wire fraud charges in connection with the company’s airbag systems. The indictment points to specific internal emails in which Takata executives discuss “XX-ing,” altering or “manipulating” test data that showed that the ammonium nitrate inflators did not meet automakers’ specifications and were subject to failures.
