Barcodes Indicate country of origin. Don't know if is true or not.


Barcode Identifies Country of Origin
Another "nice to know item…"

The whole world is scared of China-made 'black hearted goods'. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ? Here's how... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.

Example: All barcodes that start with 690, 691, 692, thru 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.
Barcode items starting with 471 are Made in Taiwan

This is our human right to know, but the government and related department 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 originates.

However, you may now refer to the barcode. Remember if the first 3 digits are in the range 690-695, then it is Made in China .

00 ~ 13 USA & CANADA
30 ~ 37 FRANCE
40 ~ 44 GERMANY
49 ~ JAPAN
50 ~ UK
57 ~ Denmark
64 ~ Finland
76 ~ Switzerland and Lienchtenstein

471 ~ Taiwan

480 ~ Philippines

628 ~ Saudi Arabia

740-741-742-743-744-745 ~ Central America

This is really helpful and cool

Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed
dial: 1-800-goog411.


This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are
on the road.

Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time
manually dialing the number. I am driving along in my car and I need to call the
golf course and I don't know the number. I hit the speed dial for
information that I have programmed.

The voice at the other end says, "City & State." I say, "
Garland , Texas ." He says, "Business Name or Type of Service." I
say, "Firewheel Golf Course." He says, "Connecting" and
Firewheel answers the phone. How great is that? This is nationwide and it is
absolutely free!

Click on the link below and watch the short clip for a quick demonstration.
