These are probably re-releases to make up for the zinc rot which corroded and destroyed the first release.

Will they recall the sold models now experiencing zinc rot (ala car manufacturers)?

Probably not, I'd say...

Recall? Are you kidding? There was a huge uproar amongst collectors when several AC models were diagnosed with zinc rot and started crumbling under their own weight, my PIA 720B being one of them and AC tried to justify the whole thing blaming the factories in China for not using the proper formula during the manufacturing process. These re-releases are in some way to compensate those who lost models this way.

Nope, you want a replacement for your disintegrated AC model? You gotta 'buy' the replacement.
