The importance of QA and simple proofreading

My sister found this at the store this weekend. McCormick Spices – a company I would regard as large – had a misspelling of one of their own products on the label. How does the title of the product go into production and onto the shelves misspelled? Even if there are multiple ways (and in this case I dont think there are), if the item is your product you should have a universal way of spelling it.

How does a company let this happen?

I then went to their website and found “Tumeric” in a few spots. I know it’s nit-picky but I find it frustrating and it should be embarrassing for them.
