Thanks for the PSA.

I followed that link to the NHTSA, copied in my VIN and got this:
"Jan 14,2019
Manufacturer Recall NumberNA
NHTSA Recall Number19V015
Recall StatusRecall Incomplete
Summary
DRIVER'S FRONT AIR BAG: This recall campaign involves the Takata PSDI-4 inflator which entered the spare parts supply chain, and may have been installed in vehicles with sport steering wheels at dealers during service visits. During air bag deployment in an accident, the driver's front air bag module may produce excessive internal pressure that could cause the inflator to rupture."

So at first read, it looks like I need to take it in. But reading a little more slowly ...
"... spare parts supply chain, and may have been installed in vehicles with sport steering wheels at dealers during service visits"

I don't have a sport steering wheel, so I'm not affected.

And this seems to say that even if I did have a 3-spoke sport wheel, unless the airbag was replaced during a service visit, I'm not affected.

Right?
