As memory serves, this was on Taurus Brazil. I don't think it affected any of their guns made elsewhere.

However, if you own any of the affected pistols (PT-111 Millennium; PT-132 Millennium; PT-138 Millennium; PT-140 Millennium; PT-145 Millennium; PT-745 Millennium; PT-609; PT-640 and PT-24/7) return it back to Taurus quickly and be safe
Six models you couldn't pay me to own to start with!

Don't have as many rounds through my PT740 Slim but it's a great little carry gun.
