Hi Judy,

   This sounded really interesting, so I searched the Internet for more
   information about it.  Unfortuntely, it sounds like it's not quite
   true.  :(


   It's sort of true, but refers to where the barcode was put on, not
   where the product was manufactured.  It's also only applicable to
   EAN-13 barcodes which aren't used in the US.  

   I wish it was true, though!  I've been paying much closer attention
   to food labels lately.
