Honda CR-V Recall, Loss of steering danger

Do you own one of these potentially deadly defective 2006 Honda CRV vehicles?
Vehicle Make / Model:     Model Year(s):
     HONDA CR-V     2006
Manufacturer: HONDA (AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.) Mfr's Report Date: MAR 22, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V124000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,316
Summary:
 HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006 CR-V VEHICLES. THE WELD STRENGTH ATTACHING THE SUB-FRAME BUSHING COLLAR TO THE PASSENGER-SIDE FRONT LOWER ARM IS INSUFFICIENT. THE COLLAR CAN SEPARATE FROM THE ARM DUE TO VIBRATION WHILE DRIVING.
Consequence:
 AS A RESULT, A LOSS OF STEERING CAN OCCUR, INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH.
Remedy:
 HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE PRODUCTION LOT STAMP ON THE PASSENGER-SIDE FRONT LOWER ARM AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE LOWER ARM
