    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 supermarket and especially Walmart (ASDA – US owned) when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is  located. The whole world is concerned about China-made “black hearted goods”. Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or  China ? The world is also concerned about GM (Genetically Modified) foods; steroid fed animals etc in USA.

    It is important to read the bar code to track its origin. 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 UK” AND NOT FROM CHINA or USA!!

    If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN  CHINA.  471 is Made in Taiwan . If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 00 – 09 then it’s made or sourced in USA 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 bar code – 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 UK made by watching for “50″ at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we can get!  Pass this on to everybody .

    The government won’t help us, so we MUST help ourselves.
