According to a technical bulletin issued by the American company, which BikeRadar has seen, the stop sell applies to both versions of the brakes with serial numbers between 36T30000000 and 42T39999999 shipped to bike assembly points and after-market distribution channels after 5 September 2013. Product shipped before this date is not affected.
The serial number is found on the brake caliper (rim or disc) and on the outside of the box containing the product.
SRAM's technical bulletin on the issue says affected brake systems already in the market will be handled via the normal warranty process.
