This Decades Childrens Books

I used to love it when Mom went shopping and brought us home a new "Little Golden Book."  We'd read it before going to bed.

My, my! Those books sure have changed from when I was a kid.

Made in China Bar Code information.


I have no anymousity to Chinese people, or anyone for that matter. I am concerned about food products that are imported from China. Periodically we hear a report that pet food, made in China, was tainted with some gawd-awful substance.  I have heard the same negative reports about baby formula and food. So I am somewhat skeptical when it comes to prepared food made in China. So I'll pass along this advice.

(ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY--NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE B...OX 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 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 .... interesting!

This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.

GREAT WAY TO "BUY USA & CANADA " AND NOT FROM CHINA!!


The whole world is concerned about 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

471 .... Taiwan

49 ... JAPAN

50 ... UK


BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number.
