thanks for checking it Chris. I should know better. This friend tends to pass along sensational info, so I usually check it myself before sharing. Just didn't take the time tonight. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Christopher P. Lindsey" <lindsey@mallorn.com>

The first 3 digits of the barcode identify the country code
wherein the product was made.

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.  :(

     http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/barcodes.asp

  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.

Chris
