Ford is recalling more than 154,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because it has lost track of some older Takata air bags that can explode and hurl shrapnel.

The largest recall covers more than 153,000 Ranger pickup trucks from the 2004 through 2006 model years because Ford can’t find 45 obsolete air bags that may have been installed in them.

The smaller recall involves about 1,100 vehicles that may have gotten obsolete Takata air bags in collision repairs.
