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 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 FROMCHINA!!
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.

I've give up. Everything is made in China.  Even if it has USA - somewhere in small writing is that it was distributed from a USA source, made in China.  Candy, cookies, name brand vacuums, clothing, books, paints - they are all made in China.

Even my friend who wanted only Italian made shoes tried on her favorite brand and it didn't fit quite like always.  I looked inside the shoe - and on a tiny tag - "made in China."  She asked the clerk. "Oh, don't worry," he said, "We send our specifications and they must be same the same as in Italy. They are checked for consistency in Italy before shipping to the retail stores."  Right.  That's why they no longer fit my friend - who has been buying them for ten years with perfect fits.
