The pinch strip isn't touched when replacing the latches, and you even said that it took three weeks to act up.
Also, the latch "recall" you mentioned isn't actually a safety recall, its a service action. Service actions are not covered outside of basic warranty, so it looks like you already got a freebie from the dealer.
