Great, thanks. Unfortunately, no Recalls and no Technical Service Bulletins have been issued in relation to problems with the Throttle Body. GM Throttle Bodies in this year vehicle have been very problematic. Before replacing the Throttle Body, make sure they carefully inspect the wire harness for any pinched or damaged wires, as this is common. Many times a cleaning can help as well.
