Daimler recalls 400,000 cars in Britain amid global measure

BERLIN, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Daimler is recalling 400,000 Mercedes-Benz cars in Britain and a few hundred thousand in Germany as part of a global recall caused by a potential airbag safety issue, it said.

Conducting paths related to affected vehicles’ steering columns could break and lead to an electrostatic discharge which could unintentionally deploy the driver’s airbag, a spokesman for Daimler said on Monday. (Reporting by Andreas Cremer; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
