I'm not sure if the recall is still being enforced.

I did check the s/n of my 500VL and it is post recall, but not by much.

I think a CS 450 is a weak replacement for the 500VL.  It should be at least a CS 500, or even a 590 would be a good one IMO.

Last known recall replacement was Oct 2014.  That I know of.

I'd rather have the cs500 then cs450 but I would take both over the 500vl. JMO
