This is really weird.

Not ten minutes ago there was a similar post four below this one. I just went to link it to this thread and it has now totally disappeared, vanished.

It was here under hardware. It is now gone. It was posted by a noob, name was not a real word but started with an A if I remember right.

High5 on no salt.

I just did a google search and the only thing that pops up are a bunch of fish forums discussing this recall. I would think if it was a legit recall, something would be mentioned on a site other than fish message boards.

Regardless if the recall is legit or not, I'm getting uncomfortable w/ my heater having issues and I had planned on replacing it anyway, so I'm still going to my LFS tomorrow.

I'm very curious to learn if this recall is truly legit or if it's just some hoax to make everyone panic and run to their LFS just to make them look like idiots. Afterall, news on fish forums travel fast...

The ones you are seeing on Google are from May of last year. This is a new one that was sent in an e-mail to a fellow forum member from PetSmart.

I just kind of smell a potential rat because by law, recalls have to be notified by US mail, not email.

Plus, why has no one else who has a warranty on a stealth recieved this?

I saw those at first, but then I refined my search to only show the "Past Week" and it showed 49 results.
