Does the motion of the car, plane, boat or train leave you a little queezy?

My favorite company story regarding quality control has to do with tainted ginseng root
(Ginseng is an herb known for promoting energy and vitality) much of what is on the market comes from China. Due to floods in the early 90’s the gisent roots were rotting. They sprayed the roots with Quintizine to prevent further rotting to get them overseas for production.
My company tests all incoming raw ingredients. The ginseng during pre-production was tainted. Over and over each batch was showing this chemical. This did not meet our companies standards of excellance. As a company they halted producing it’s 3rd top selling herb until they could find clean raw materials. This took YEARS. Worst part – no other company stopped producing. During this extended time period anyone taking Ginseng supplements made by other companies were also ingesting this chemical. True story.
