Default Drake Spindle Recall

Not sure if everyone or anyone has heard about this. I recently got a pair of Mustang spindles to convert a '64 Comet to V8 & disc. Shortly after getting them I received the following recall notice:

*February 9, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19E011000
Wheel Spindles may Fail Spindle failure can cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The spindle may fail resulting in the wheel and tire detaching from the vehicle's steering system.
