I got this letter in the mail from Weatherby yesterday:

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
WEATHERBY® SA-08 SEMI-AUTOMATIC SHOTGUN

Weatherby, Inc. of Paso Robles, California, is performing a safety upgrade on a limited number of Weatherby® SA-08 model semi-automatic shotguns manufactured and sold by Weatherby, Inc., between June 1, 2010 and February 28, 2011. The affected shotguns bear serial numbers on the receiver within the following series: AD06825 - AD13793 (inclusive). The safety upgrade will replace the trigger/firing assembly of the affected shotgun, and prevent a potential accidental discharge, which could occur if certain parts were to become loose. Accidental discharge of any firearm can result in severe injury or property damage if the muzzle of the firearm is pointed in an unsafe direction at the time of accidental discharge.
WARNING: If you own a Weatherby® SA-08 model semi-automatic shotgun with a serial number within any of the serial number series referred to above, USE OF YOUR SHOTGUN MAY RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE AND SEVERE INJURY. STOP USING YOUR SHOTGUN IMMEDIATELY and call Weatherby at 1-800-227-2016 OR 805-227-2600 to receive instructions on how to return the shotgun’s trigger/firing assembly for the safety upgrade. Upon receipt of your trigger/firing assembly, a replacement assembly will be sent to you.

NO OTHER WEATHERBY® SHOTGUNS ARE AFFECTED BY THIS SAFETY NOTICE. CHECK YOUR SERIAL NUMBER.
The affected shotguns were originally sold through licensed wholesale distributors and gun dealers nationwide, and some of them may have been resold by the original owners through retail gun dealers, trade shows or privately. If you have sold, traded or given away an affected Weatherby® SA-08 model semi-automatic shotgun, it is important for you to forward this Safety Notice to the current owner.
Weatherby apologizes for any inconvenience to its customers resulting from this safety upgrade program, but it is important that owners of affected shotguns take advantage of this free upgrade program and do not use an affected shotgun before it has been upgraded. All work will be done at the factory at no charge. Please do not return your Weatherby® SA-08 shotgun to the factory before contacting us for return instructions.
