Re: Bar Codes on Products we Buy - Interesting Read


Recommended Posts

Now this is interesting...cut, paste, print and carry the chart in case you are curious about the country of origin of a product.

This may be useful to know especially when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.

Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China?

If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan.

This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA ", so they don't show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are:

690-692���then it is MADE IN CHINA .

00 - 09���USA�& CANADA

30 - 37���FRANCE

40 - 44���GERMANY

47 ... Taiwan



BUY�USA�by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number.� We need every boost we can get!
