TOKYO (REUTERS) - Nissan Motor Co said on Thursday that it would recall around 152,000 cars worldwide that carry potentially defective Takata Corp air bags.

Japan's No. 2 automaker said it was recalling cars using Takata's passenger side air bags, including its Presage minivan models.

Nissan said it expanded its recall after a recent "unusual deployment" of a Takata air bag at a salvage yard in central Japan, which also triggered recalls by Toyota Motor Corp .

The company also said it was recalling 250,000 cars, including its March model in Japan, over separate issues with its door mirrors.
