Update: The actual NHTSA says it is for 04-06 cars
I'm seeing the story popping up on various other motoring websites as well. I'm assuming it's legitimate. It's not the first time we've heard about this problem with them, just the first time there's been a recall for it I think?
Ok, I found the NHTSA site for it:

Lamborghini is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 Gallardo Coupe and Spyder vehicles. In certain driving conditions, the high pressure steering pipes near the the steering assistance hydraulic system pump might leak.
Leaking fluid, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.
Lamborghini will notify owners, and dealers will update the power steering system free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 10, 2012. Owners may contact Lamborghini at 1-703-364-7042.
