Default Cunterfeit airbags?

There was a news story today that says counterfeit airbags are being sold. That some are selling airbags from China that don't work correctly, and canexplode.

Question: How can I tell if my airbag has ever deployed? (and been replaced?)

I bought a used 2003 Civic LX a year ago, with 100K miles, for a good price.. However, it had been in an accident and fixed with aftermarket parts. Thehood had been replaced with a non-Honda hood. I can tell because they paint is flaking off and it doesn't fit correctly. The rear bumper cover is also probably non-Honda.

I don't know if the accidents were bad enough to have set off the airbags. But since they used other cheaper parts, if they did replace the airbags, they probably tried to save money on that, too. I'm concerned enough that I'd like to have this checked.
