Voluntary recall by SHIMANO

Voluntary recall by SHIMANO.  <—LINK HERE

Word out from Shimano is a recall on some disc brakes.  If you have them, please goto your local LBS and get them replaced.

BR-CX75, BR-R515 AND BR-R315

We have identified a potential safety issue with respect to our mechanical disc brake calipers for road racing bikes which are sold after February 2012 (BR-CX75, BR-R515 and BR-R315). So far, no injuries are reported.

As a responsible company where the safety of our customers has top priority, we are voluntarily recalling the brake calipers concerned. We are replacing these with improved brake calipers in which the safety issue no longer exists.
