SEOUL - South Korea's transport ministry said on Thursday it has ordered four automakers to recall 24,808 automobiles that may contain faulty air bags made by Takata Corp , given the possibility of injury to drivers.

The recall mainly affected Honda Motor Co Ltd CR-Vs and Accords made between 2003 and 2008, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV's Chrysler 300C, as well as Renault SA and Ford vehicles, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a statement.

Takata is at the centre of a recall of tens of millions of cars around the world for potentially deadly air bag inflators that could deploy with too much force and spray metal fragments inside vehicles.
