From F-One:

During our ongoing product quality monitoring applied to retailed items, we have noted that some Release handle of Bandit 4, in very limited quantity could present a conformity fault.

This is why with safety and foresight in mind we have engaged in a recall procedure covering all the manufactured parts.

We apologize for any eventual nuisance bound to this unexpected event and we hope that this preventive measure will find your full support and understanding.
