The content of the email is correct, though I suspect the "from" address is not a legitimate Apple email address. This leads me to believe the links contained in the email may be a "phishing" attempt. As a rule you should not click links in an email.
Check for yourself if your Mac is affected by the recall program. Use the following link - not the one in the email:
If the displayed language is not correct, you can specify your language by choosing it from the column on the left.
You can determine your Mac's serial number using the instructions on that page.MacBooks iMacs iPads AirPorts, OS X Mountain Lion, 28 years Apple!

Read this - from Identifying fraudulent "phishing" email
Note the email greeting
Phishing emails tend to start with generic phrases like "Dear valued customer" or your email account name, such as "Dear snookums123," instead of your name ("Dear Emily" for example). Most legitimate companies include your name in their correspondence because companies will have it on record (if you've dealt with them before).
"Dear iMac owner" seems very unlike Apple to me.
Check your iMac's serial number yourself, and if you are affected by the recall, schedule a Genius Bar appointment here:

If you are not affected, delete the email and forget you ever saw it.MacBooks iMacs iPads AirPorts, OS X Mountain Lion, 28 years Apple!
