BARCODES....USEFUL INFORMATION

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

Good information to have these days in light of the recent product recalls, illness and deaths.

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

If the first 3 digits of the barcode are
690-695 inclusive, the product is MADE IN CHINA ..

471 is Made in Taiwan .

000 - 019 USA & CANADA
300 - 379 FRANCE & Monaco
400 - 440 GERMANY
450 - 459 - JAPAN
500 - 509 United Kingdom
930 - 939 Australia
940 - 949 New Zealand

For a full list of the Codes go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_GS1_country_codes
