 (CNN) - BMW is recalling 1.6 million of its popular 3 series vehicles based on concerns over airbag safety.

Last month the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said seven automakers - BMW, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda, Chrysler and Ford - would be recalling vehicles to fix a possible safety defect in air bag inflators built by the Japanese firm, Takata.

Thousands of GM vehicles have also been recalled over similar Takata-built airbag problems.

The recall affects BMW cars manufactured between mid-1999 and mid-2006.
