    With more and more milk products from China and Taiwan having problem. We really got to check where the things are produced. Here is a way to differentiate Taiwan made products and China made products : by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.

    If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made
    If the 1st 3 digits are 471 – Taiwan made


    Nowadays, China businessmen:twizt: know the consumers do not prefer products "made in china", so they won't show made from which country.
    However, you may now refer to the barcodes, if the first 3 digits is 690-692 then it is made in China .


    (mods May edit the information above if they found something objectionable :help:)..

    Taiwan-made goods are mostly electronics and computer hardware. They are of very good quality, most of them adhere to the ROHS guidelines and are lead-free.

    Barcodes are just printed Graphics just like any other .It is just machine readable representation of DATA. If you can print Made in X on a product Made in Y , you can also do with Bar codes.

    There are even free bar code fonts available to print whatever you want to type.

    well the funny part is Chinese have a history of selling medications with Made in India tag. so its not a big deal for them to manipulate, i guess.
