HOW TO READ BAR CODES

HOW TO READ BAR CODES

Important information – how to recognize if products are
made in China or Taiwan…especially for our groceries

ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY–NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK!

With many of the food and pet products now coming from China it is best to make sure you read labels at the grocery store, and especially Walmart when buying food products.

Many products no longer show where they were made, and only give where the distributor is  located.

It is important to read the bar code to track it’s origin.

GREAT WAY TO “BUY USA  &  CANADA “ AND NOT FROM CHINA!!

The whole world is concerned about China-made “black hearted goods”.
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 .
 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

471 …  Taiwan
49 
… JAPAN
50   UK

BUY US& CANADIAN MADE by watching for “0” at the beginning of the number.
