It means that during the first replacement the hub or carrier where the new bearing presses into was damaged and slightly deformed. therefore every new bearing burns up quickly.

Do a search on this, the detailed info should turn up.

I have the TSB on our Scoobymods site, check www.endwrench.com too and you will get some good info there too. As stated once they screw up the first install you'll just eat bearings left and right till they replace the carrier I think.
