Default Good Infomation If You Are Trying To Buy Only Usa And Canada Products


With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read 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.

How to read Bar Codes ... !

This is really interesting.
GREATWAY TO"BUY USA & CANADA ? AND NOT FROM CHINA!!
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.. The whole world is afraid of 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 .

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
49
... JAPAN
50 ... UK

BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching

For "0" at the beginning of the number.

We need every boost we can get!
