National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on Tuesday they have started an investigation into 30 million vehicles built by almost two dozen automakers that have potentially defective Takata air bag inflators.

The confirmation comes after it was reported earlier that NHTSA has started such an investigation.

The NHTSA has opened an engineering analysis into an estimated 30 million U.S. vehicles from the 2001 through 2019 model years. It confirmed the new investigation on Tuesday and said it applied to 1,384 different vehicle models.

No immediate safety risk has been confirmed as of yet and drivers do not need to take action, the NHTSA said.
