I think the manufacturers are only obliged to inform the VOSA with regard to safety critical recalls. So if there's a chance of fire, brake or steering failure, or something else that's potentially very dangerous, then the VOSA have to be informed.
But when it comes to non-safety critical recalls (e.g. for components that which might be prone to faults or premature failures, but which don't pose danger to life and limb if they do) I don't think there's any obligation for the manufacturer to tell the VOSA. The last time I looked, the recall on my old 2.0
