Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky reading from a portion of the NADA letter at an oversight hearing on the Takata Recall.
My work has just begun. Unfortunately the Takata saga continues, as recalls are ongoing and millions of people are still driving around with faulty airbags. And although Takata was a major player in Jewel’s tragedy, it was not the only one. Her death opened my eyes to the massive problem we have in the US with consumer safety—life shouldn’t be “buyer beware.” Corporations need to be held to stricter standards to ensure public safety, and I’m ready to be a voice for all of those whose lives have been lost because of this kind of corporate greed and negligence.
