If they did not see a code at that time, they would not replace the sensor. Just adjust the software to allow the sensor more leeway before it would set the code.
Now that you actually have the code that would have caused them to replace the sensor, the recall does not apply.
You might be able to get some assistance if you go over the local dealer and contact Ford directly about it. Sometimes they do a goodwill repair. Hard to say, but it only takes a call or E-Mail to the customer address/number on their web site to find out.
Otherwise it is still a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.
