URGENT! PLEASE SPREAD THIS FAR AND WIDE!

I just received an email from a guy with an attachment from Federal Premium Ammunition. The attachment is an urgent recall of some lots of Federal and American Eagle .45 ammo.
***Please read all of this if you have ANY .45 ACP ammunition from American Eagle, Champion, GoldMedal, Hi-Shok, or Federal.***
I checked Federal's web site, but saw nothing about this recall as of 12 PM on February 10th, so I called them to make sure this wasn't a hoax.
IT IS REAL.

The email was from a guywho said that an H&K, using the ammo mentioned in the recall, blew up in someone's hand a couple of weeks ago at the Hampton Road Criminal Justice Training Academy!
