Is it visible? I'm not sure where to put stuff like this in the first place, and how to get it made visible to the most viewers. Sorry folks. A "RECALLS" sub forum might be useful, placed on the home pages in plain view.
I had hoped a forum Mod would help out.

Thanks for posting this.

That looks exactly like the one I bought a couple years ago.

They were made in Japan before I bought it and I was disappointed they whored manufacturing out to China, but I bought it anyway.

Not sure what my concern was. The defective units were made in Japan and my serial falls outside the error range. I'm so glad I don't have to deal with this recall! I live off that thing. It has been solid for a couple years. I've got about 5000 hours on it so far.

My China made ones were not part of the recall.
