Country bar code

Got this from email and I must let many other know too, how helpful and useful of the barcode.

Due to the whole world scared of China made products, the China businessman also know that the consumers do not prefer products "Made in China", for some they won't show made from which country.

However, we really got to check where the things are produced. You may now refer to the barcode, if the first 3 digits is 690-695 then it is made in China. Please becareful on China made food or product now for your own health and better think twice before buy or consume.

This is made in Taiwan

From the EAN barcode system, here I've extract some country's product which we see often. Remember, it indicates the country that issued the code, NOT THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN OF THE PRODUCT.

000 - 019US & Canada
030 - 039US & Canada
060 - 139US & Canada
450 - 459Japan
489Hong Kong
490 - 499Japan
500 - 509UK
690 - 695China
754 - 755Canada
930 - 939Australia
