BluTec cheater software recall

Mine is a 2010 sprinter chassis but it does not say BluTec anywhere on the engine or the chassis. It has a Freightliner badge.

So how do I know if I need to get it fixed? Are they putting out a list of Vin Numbers or what?

Very confused, thank you.

Mercedes has a web site which allows you to look up active recalls:
Given that their agreement to recall vehicles is recent, the web site may not have been updated yet.

Here's a paragraph that may help (from the Consumer Reports story about the recall):

The recalls will be performed in batches through January 2022, and owners will be notified by mail when their car is ready for a fix. They can also call Mercedes-Benz at 800-367-6372 with questions related to passenger cars, or 877-762-8267 with questions about the Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter. The automaker also plans to set up a website dedicated to the recall.

Two interesting links from the Sprinter forum:

I wonder if this will have any effect on fuel economy.
