Which journal was that taken from Sue? Difficult to see the model types.
Found it - this may be more legible.

Without wanting to sound like a plank.
Is this a recent thing or from some time ago?
I can’t see a date on the printed publication
Well ours is in the range.
Looks like an old publication? I can’t see them recalling 13yr old goods??
If you look at the document title it appears to be from November 2009. From memory the recall was to fix the support bracket for the gas burner. Not sure how you would know if the fix has been applied to any particular fridge.
This is a link to a previous thread on the subject which also shows the bracket fitted as part of the recall https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/important-dometic-fridge-recall.4114/#post-1619829
Ours is also in affected range, I've tried ringing the number and it drops out after about 20 rings. Typical Dometic - shilerpite
Suspect it is an old bulletin as already suggested.
We have one possibly in the affected range. Have dug out the manual, has lots of figures/ ?seriel numbers written on the back. Somehow feel this may indicate the work was done or ours is not within the affected seriel numbers.How do you find the number without removing the fridge, is there a plate inside, not going to storag to find out, will be there on Thursday so can check then.
I think there is a sticky on the inside rear wall of the fridge. Might need to take out the box at the bottom of the fridge.
Inside the fridge, bottom left in our RM7605.
Got loads of paperwork with the van, will have a good look through to see if there is any record of it having been done.
I was shown a Dometic fridge that was taken out of a camping car in Rainham UK by Anthony Pfaff a Rapido technical expert only two week ago, he told me that all units from 2015 will be recalled at Rapidos expense but it is almost imposable to recall sold on units and at abut 18k the dometic fridge will be a concern to the compony has anyone seen any advertisements in the papers or on the internet asking owners to contact the dealer ship ? as each camping car manufacture will not talk to one another how is the industry going to solve this before a fatality is reported, I do not own a camping car yet but I will think about it for a long time before making my mind up,
Ours hadn't been done and the gas pipe to the burner fractured resulting in a small fire which luckily I quickly spotted and extinguished. Done now but worth checking that yours has been. Its a simple fix that will be done foc.
