Power Steering Failure

Today on a 200 mile trip my 2014 with 26K miles decided to lose electric assist out of no where with "Service power steering, drive with care" on the DIC. The recall for the power steering was completed in 2016. Just wondering if anyone has experienced failure AFTER the recall? It did work after I restarted the car. On a side note today was the first time I've heard a loud whining sound under the hood after turning the car off. Took a video of this...or not 😒

Yes, check out the thread in the Warranty and Repairs section (there are two related to the steering). There have been at least a handful of reoccurance of steering loss after the recall.
