How to identify products from China

I got this forwarded email from a friend who works in Unilab. I don't know who is the original author of this but I'd like to thank him for sharing. Here's a way to determine if a product is from China...

Dear friends,

The whole world is scared of China made products. Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China? Let me tell you...the first 3 digits of barcode 690, 691, 692 are MADE IN CHINA 471 as in the sample below is Made in Taiwan .

It is our human 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
49 - JAPAN
50 - UK
