While it is rare for countries to recall ambassadors the mere fact of doing so doesn't mean anything more is pending or that escalation will follow. My understanding is that it is a move that lets the targeted country know there is a problem at some point.
Exactly. Shuffling around diplomats (and embassies) is a rather standard diplomatic move to say "we don't like what you said" or "we don't like your latest policy."
If you're a news junkie (like me) you'll recall many of these incidents in the past.
