The component is only said to be found in some more specific versions but cannot be entirely isolated so the recall is issued to all 13-inch MacBook Pro models without Touch Bar that have been produces between October 2016 and October 2017.

While Apple denies that there is any risk of safety involved, one should definitely return the device to be repaired. The repair is largely as simple as switching the battery, but other issues with the laptop might have to be fixed before the replacement.
