I’m A Broken Record

Yep.  I feel like a broken record, repeating the same old, same old information.   This company, it seems, made two fatal mistakes.  First, it lost control of the quality process.  But equally important, once it got a hint of a problem it didn’t immediately address the issue.  Things built up so long and so big that eventually the company couldn’t afford to address the issue without committing suicide.  Here the failure of oversight was a fatal mistake in more ways than one.
