Exclamation 2013 outback recall?

I got this email from a friend, I never got anything from the mail or email
Did anyone else receive info about this recall

Subaru is recalling 5,379 Legacy and Outback vehicles for potential loss of steering, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The steering column shafts on 2013 models "may not have been 'press-fitted' sufficiently," which could cause the inner and outer shafts to separate and the driver to lose control, Subaru said.

Dealers will replace the steering column assembly starting on Thursday, when parts become available. Owners can contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.
