Can you differentiate which product is made in Taiwan or in China?

When you refer to the bar code, remember if the first 3 digits are:

00 - 09 ... Made in USA & Canada         

30 - 37 ... Made in France

40 - 44 ... Made in Germany                       

47 ... Made in Taiwan

49 ... Made in Japan                                       

50 ...  Made in UK

690 - 692 ... Made in China  .

To buy products made in Canada or the USA watch for "0" at the beginning of the bar code.
