Some Kobe Steel clients less forthcoming on safety numbers

While rail operators offer details on components, carmakers only say parts safe

| Japan

TOKYO -- Manufacturers have offered differing levels of detail on how faulty materials from Kobe Steel affect the performance of their products, with members of some industries rushing to declare goods safe but remaining vague on the specifics.

Problems continue to arise from the steelmaker's doctoring of information regarding the quality of its products. On Friday, new instances of cheating surfaced in the company's mainstream steel goods business. The first reports when the scandal broke involved aluminum and copper components, before spreading to steel soon after.
