Apple has not recalled ALL these units, only the ones that have failed. Only Apple and Nvidia really know if all the GPUs are defective or if it's just with the solder and, as far as I know, they aren't telling. What we really need on this is a way to fix these ourselves when Apple stops honoring the repairs.
 
Specific products affected:
 
MacBook Pro 15-inch and 17-inch models with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processors
 
MacBook Pro (17-Inch, 2.4GHz)
 
MacBook Pro (15-Inch, 2.4/2.2GHz)
 
MacBook Pro (Early 2008)
 
These computers were manufactured between approximately May 2007 and September 2008
 
UPDATE 1/2015
 
Since I wrote this answer I have replaced several of the left I/O boards on machines that failed to boot rather than boot with no video. I have had a 80% success rate. So it was not the GPU on these.
 
'''UPDATE 4/25/20'''
 
Using '''gfx card status''' will allow you to turn off the integrated graphics of the GPU. I have done this on about a dozen machines now and returned these machines back to an operational status.
