Marzocchi fork recall

Don't piss off the red guy
I just read this so I thought I would share in case riders or shops have them:

PRODUCT: Bicycle forks, made in Taiwan by Tenneco-Marzocchi s.r.l., of Bologna, Italy. The recalled bicycle forks were sold for installation on mountain bikes. The recall involves 2008 model year 888RC3 and 888RC3WC suspensions with date codes beginning with T07D07, T07D08 and T07D09. The products were sold at various bicycle parts distributors and retailers nationwide from July through September 2007.

HOW MANY: 70

WHY: The suspension system on bikes with the recalled forks could completely compress and fail to return to its original position after a forceful landing. This can cause riders to lose control of the bicycle and crash. The company has eight reports of damaged forks outside the U.S., including a report of an injury from a fall.
