I-797C - is this a call to action?

So we filed our I-130 petition at the end of August 2016 and very quickly received our I-797C NOA form. Both of us read the form and did not see a call to action within it. However...now it is December and we are still waiting for an update beyond that it has been sent to Nebraska but I suddenly got a horrible feeling that we had been asked something in our letter and hadn't read it properly.

There is a sentence in there that says word for word: "Please verify your personal information listed above and immediately notify USCIS National Customer Service Centre at the phone number listed below if there are any changes."

Initially we both read that as "verify this information and if it's incorrect or changed then call immediately to rectify it". However, NOW I'm reading it as "contact us to verify this information and also if there are any changes"

What does this sentence mean to anyone else? I am in the UK right now freaking out that we've just wasted four months waiting for nothing but our own stupid selves lol. I can't call them myself right now but hubby will be doing so first thing in the morning PST.

Can anyone tell me if we incorrectly interpreted this or whether it wasn't actually a call to action?

Sincerely hoping we didn't interpret it wrongly.

Don't worry - you interpreted it right the first time. If all information is correct, no action needed. You're still within usual processing time for the I130. Breathe, hang in there and happy holidays!

Nope, you shouldn't have to do anything as long as the info is correct! I pulled out my NOA1, and it says the exact same thing, and I never had to do anything to move the process along. Four months is pretty normal, AFAIK, so don't worry too much!
