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

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!
