Looks like it is due to an incorrect placard but worthy of note.

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners...Category=R&searchCriteria.nhtsa_ids=14V475000
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."
REMEDY:
For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Even for a stupid recall like this it's a good idea to respond. Otherwise when you go to sell your FJ it will show up as an open recall (on CarFax etc.) and people will have the same initial reaction. I had that on my 2008, there was a recall for a TRD brake kit that they sent out to everyone who possibly could have had it installed by a dealer (I think 20,000 FJs for a few kits they couldn't account for). There was an option to send in a card to Toyota to say "I don't have those" -- I didn't do that, and recently when I went to sell the 2008 FJ I had to get a dealer to report that they had confirmed I didn't have those brakes to get the "open recall" removed from Toyota and CarFax records.
