3.0 Battery and LG Chem recall?

I'm NOT trying to start anything, but thought the question should be asked...

With the recall by Hyundai of their Kona EVs for battery flaws, I wonder if the cells used in the Roadster 3.0 battery pack have been cross-checked for their source and pedigree? I believe we determined that the 3.0 battery cells were manufactured by LG Chem.

To be clear, there are lots of different batteries manufactured by this company, and only the one particular version used in the Kona are involved. But Tesla seems to be ignoring the Roadster sufficiently that the linkage might not be seen.
