    Want to know where your products are coming from?

    How to read Bar Codes .... interesting!
    This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.
    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 ?

    Are You Really Buying American?
    IT'S TIME THAT WE HELP OURSELVES AND OUR COUNTRY. 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---CAREFULLY!
    With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located.It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.

    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

    471 ... Taiwan

    49 ... JAPAN

    50 ... UK

    snopes is not what they used to be, they just state the fucking obvious

    consumers should still look for "Made in [country name] labels in packaging

    fucking I would have never thought of that!

    oh thank you oh wonderful snopes I'm not worthy!
