Consumer Product Saftey Recall...what to do?

Hello Everyone,
I've been lurking around here but never registered.
This is my first post!

Anyways, I own a Gary Fisher Utopia that I bought new in 2001.

I was Googling around today and discovered its listed as a recalled product:

http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml01/01011t.html

Even though my bike is registered with GF, they never contacted me.

Does anyone have nay suggestions about what I should do?

...or what it was recalled for...

..is it too late?

Thank you in advance!

Gary Fisher just replied to email (I asked them 10 minutes ago! Super fast)
Apparently the recall is on the forks and I need to contact the manufacturer.....myabe this explains why my front forks vibrate so much!
