It was posted earlier yesterday as well. Good info to have, thanks. There is a link with a more detailed description of the problem(~4 page pdf) and affected hubs about 7 or 8 posts down.
Gotta replace mine too.

Here is the thread.

While on topic, could someone explain the difference between the Shimano M756, M760, and M765 hubs?

Edit:I found my answer:
M756 is a disc brake hub, iso standard; the M760 is a non-disc hub; the M765 is a disc brake hub, center-lock type.

Oh like their product is any better. Perhaps you didn't work in a shop when Gripshift was introduced? Product was inferior from the start and never should have been brought to the market until they built some durability into it. Who said this was Shimano's problem/fault. Maybe they got bad or mislabeled raw material from their vendor. At least they have stepped forward and are admitting that it's an issue. I highly applaud them for that. 15 yrs ago in this industry there were very few recalls. The bicycle industry isn't even close to the auto industry or other industries in product recalls. Please note above that Shimano's recall is voluntary in conjunction with the CPSC. Doesn't appear to me as though it was a forced recall. These things are hugely expensive for any/every company to deal with.

I would assume this is worldwide. I didn't read all the details but I didn't see any specifics as to region

Same thing happened with the Trigger shifters from SRAM. There were a lot of problem with the first batch, but they seem to have it all worked out now, and I love my X0's. Given the track record, I will probably give their new road components a miss for the first year and give them a go on year 2.
