Wusthof Avantgarde Santoku problems?

My Wusthof santoku came apart the other day. At first I noticed a little play/rocking in the blade - and then it came apart when my wife was using it to peel a pomelo. The handle is still in one piece ......the blade separated from the handle all in one piece. The three rivets in the handle are still in place - going all the way through the handle. The tang of the blade goes back to the second rivet and that is where it separated. If you look closely at the top of the handle you should be able to see the break in the tang. No major traumas happened to this knife - not sure what happened? Here's a picture - any similar incidents out there?
