Its not on the NHTSA page. I didn't read the news article.
From CR:

"The Details
Vehicles recalled: Certain 2011 Hyundai Sonatas produced between Dec. 11, 2009, and Sept. 29, 2010.

The problem: A short circuit in the airbag control unit may cause front and side airbags and seatbelt pretensioners to not deploy in a crash.

The fix: Hyundai is still working on a fix for the issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

How to contact the manufacturer: The recall is expected to begin April 20, 2018. Owners can contact Hyundai customer service at 855-371-9460. Hyundai’s number for the recall is 174.

NHTSA campaign number: 18V137000.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: Plug in the 17-digit vehicle identification number at the NHTSA website. It will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed."

Per build dates shown here mine applies. Nothing really to deal with until a "fix" is presented.

2011's..."The cars were made between Dec. 11, 2009 and Sept. 29, 2010".

2009? Really? Mine is a 2012 but built in 2011.

I wouldn't expect a quick roll out. Ford had issues with their airbag computers and it was closer to six months before consumers started taking delivery of solutions. I was lucky and had a buggered up one that failed second day I owned it, so it didn't directly cause me heartache.

RECALL expanded - not good news

uh oh! RECALL expanded to multi year (2011-2013) and now includes some hybrids (2011-2012)

https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls?nhtsaId=18V137

Makes for interesting reading; no remedy yet...

" On April 18, 2018, Hyundai expanded the recall to include an additional 425,305 model year 2012-2013 Sonata and
2011-2012 Sonata Hybrid vehicles. "
