Your dealership should notify you and if they haven't yet, run your VIN on the NHTSA site to find out.

details on the recall:

Honda explains that the surface may be “exposed to production solvent drying for longer periods of time,” translating to surface cracking. In this condition, excessive fuel absorption may occur, leading to the deformation of the low-density impeller. Because of the swelling, a certain amount of interference may render the pump inoperative.

Instructions sent to U.S. dealerships reveal the extent of the repair, namely “replace the fuel pump motor with a properly manufactured part.” Emphasis on “properly.” The document also highlights that American customers will be notified by the end of July 2020.

“Honda received the first report of fuel pump module failure from the Indian market and an investigation was launched” according to the Part 573 safety recall report. The supplier analysis confirmed that swelling results in failure in May 2019, and in June 2019, the investigation “was elevated to the global Honda quality group for further handling.”
