Quora said they discovered the hack on Friday, November 30, but didn't say when the actual breach happened. In June 2016, hacking group OurMine broke into Google CEO Sundar Pichai's Quora account.

People infected with salmonella can suffer symptoms within 12 to 17 hours that include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. "Even if they've eaten some of that beef and they're not feeling ill, and the family hasn't become sick, it's still really important to get rid of that product". People experiencing severe diarrhea may need to be hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. The affected products include Kroger, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Comnor Perfect Choice, Grass Run Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart, Gourmet Burger, and JBS Generic.
The recall list and labels are available on the USDA site.
