In 2016 the government recalled Takata airbags because the inflators did not contain a desiccant (a drying agent)  to absorb moisture.  The fourth phase of scheduled Takata airbag recalls incudes the cars mentioned in the above list.  https://www.carcomplaints.com/news/topic/takata

Honda is issuing the recall now instead of waiting until December due to the progress they have made with existing recall repairs.  Honda states that the owners who had their driver-side airbag inflators replaced will need to bring their cars back to have the passenger front inflators replaced.  The recall notices will be mailed in November.  You can contact Honda at 888-234-2138 if you own one of these vehicles.
