DETROIT (AP) - Automakers and governments are releasing the models covered by a massive expansion of a Takata air bag recall announced last week.

Some models have been posted by the Canadian government, including nearly 705,000 Honda models including the Civic, Accord and CR-V dating to 2001.

Millions of Takata air bag inflators can explode with too much force, spewing metal shrapnel into drivers or passengers. Six people have been killed and more than 100 injured due to the problem.

Last week the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that Takata agreed to double the number of inflators it recalled to 33.8 million. But the makes and models were not available. The increase made it the largest auto recall in U.S. history, according to the agency.
