The NHTSA reports that during production the seal cap on the propeller shaft yoke could have deformed. If this were to fail, then fluid could leak, in which case there is a chance of fire.

The reason why is because fluid could drip onto the hot exhaust, which as you may know is not a great combination. You should have been contacted by dealers by now, but if not you will need to call them to arrange for the vehicle to be repaired free of charge.
