Made in America

I vote to start the new year making a CONCERNED EFFORT to buy AMERICAN!

I got this email today and found it quite interesting... hope you do too!

The whole world is afraid of China-made "black hearted goods".

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

If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA .

471 is Made in Taiwan .

This is our right to know, but the government 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:
690-692 ... then it is MADE IN CHINA .
00 - 09 ... USA & CANADA
30 - 37 ... FRANCE
40 - 44 ... GERMANY
47 ... Taiwan
49 ... JAPAN
50 ... UK

BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number.

WOW! Thats great info! I am a die hard "make sure it's made in the USA" I was explaining to my daughter how important it is to preserve American jobs even if your purchase costs a few more cents it's well worth the piece of mind!

My daughter has a friend who has his sights set on The US Senate and he's only 17! I think America is waking up!
