      Initially posted 8 months ago although worthy of another reminder

        Recall Date:

        That recall date is by the CPSC, not Asus.

        Initial Asus announcement is dated 2021/12/29

        As of December 28, 2021, there have been a few incidents reported in North America. Going forward, we are continuing our thorough inspection with our suppliers and customers to identify all possible affected ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboards in the market and will be working with relevant government agencies on a replacement program.

        ..someone fell asleep at the wheel to the detriment of public safety

        That recall report should have been issued sooner upon Asus disclosure by the CPCS in the interest of public safety,
        not eight months later…!
