About 300,000 of the cars being recalled are in the US and Canada; with nearly 2,000 being recalled in Japan, plus about 2,000 cars in other countries.
The issue could see airbags overinflate in a crash, potentially bursting and spraying metal and plastic debris across the cabin.
A spokesman for Honda, Hajime Kaneko, said the fault is caused by the use of incorrect material in the chemical used to deploy airbags.
Honda says that 20 accidents related this fault have been reported to date, including two deaths in America in 2009.
Honda made similar recalls back in 2008 and 2010 because of the same problem regarding faulty airbags in their cars.
