Barcodes and food
DANGEROUS IMPORTED FOODS
There are no food inspection regulations of foods grown or processed in China , Vietnam , Hong Kong or Thailand .
Other world countries are scared of China making 'black hearted goods’, but can you differentiate which one is made in Australia , the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ? For your Information ... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code where-in the product was made.
Example: all barcodes that start with 690; 691 through to 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.
4 71 is Made in Taiwan .
This is our right to know, but our governments 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 through to 695, then it is Made in China . Don't forget, Hong Kong is now China , too.

DO NOT BUY FOOD PROCESSED IN CHINA , HONG KONG , VIETNAM or THAILAND !!! Remember, there are no food inspection regulations!!!
WATCH WHAT YOU BUY. ESPECIALLY 'HIGHLINER' FISH PRODUCTS; all come from China , even though the box says 'product of Canada ', it is from China and 'processed' in Canada , that is, only the coating is added and packaged in Canada. The fish are raised in pens using chemicals that are banned in Canada as cancer causing but legal in China . This was exposed on CBC TV's 'Marketplace'.
Please think before buying anything from China .
Avoid buying all processed food packaged in China ...Anything goes! We just don't know what else is in those packages. Unlike the United States and CANADA (and Australia , Germany , France , Italy , Great Britian et al) China does not have laws regulating food processing.
Basically, do not buy any processed food from China . This includes Hong Kong. MANY companies are using a Hong Kong address to avoid this type of image reputation.

Early dawn, starts the day by riding around to collect dead chickens.
Asking around for dead chickens.
Total of 5 riders are hired by the boss to ride to farms to buy dead chickens.
A dead chicken cost 1 RMB and would be sold at 9 RMB after processing.
Storage for the dead chickens in the court yard:
Carcasses are thrown everywhere.
And on the floor....
Four employees start de-feathering the dead fowl after soaking in boiling water from a rusty wok,
enduring the pungent odour, but sometimes, it gets so terrible that even the most experienced of the workers would puke.
Workers rushing to get the chickens de-feathered.
A discarded bath tub being used to soak the bare skin dead chickens....
The contaminated water would have accelerated the decomposition process..
Wearing slippers walking among the chickens before the colouring processing.
After the colour dye, its creepy to find that they are quite tenderized.
And now presenting the mouth watering Charcoal Roasted Chicken!
Do NOT buy food originating in China (or Vietnam or Thailand)! Take the time to read the labels and look for country of origin!
Your Health is at Stake!
