Facebook user spreads misleading information Re:BARCODES

Check out Bar codes on Aldi products 

The Country Code Myth

Many people believe that Australian products must have a ’93’ at the beginning of the barcode and therefore you can tell if a product is from Australia based on the barcode number alone. None of this is strictly true – A) Australian products can have any kind of barcode on them and it won’t be a problem, and B) Products coming from outside of Australia can still have these ‘Australian’ Barcodes on them.

Where does this myth come from?

’93’ Barcodes are supplied by GS1 Australia, for this reason many people believe that they are exclusively for Australian products, however, there are no checks of this kind (GS1 only checks that you have paid their annual fees).
Furthermore, people producing products in Australia may choose to become a member of another cheaper GS1 organisation (in another country), or, they may decide to purchase barcodes from an Alternative Barcode Supplier such as Barcodes Australia.

The following misleading story was posted on facebook and shared thousands of times and the person who originally shared this is apart of the LIONS CLUB OF AUSTRALIA. Why is she that gullible?
Please read on ...her story does have some truth but to follow this strictly is suicide.
This is worth knowing, so take the time to read this, especially the 2nd bit....
(SCROLL DOWN)

A week or so ago, Current Affair did a Report on frozen vegetables imported from New Zealand. As it turns out if it is a Coles or Woollies home brand there is a more than good chance that the product has come from China. Products made by McCain’s, Birdseye and other supposed reputable companies from New Zealand are now purchasing vegie products from China and selling that product under their name.

Basically check where it is produced by the comments on the back of the pack and if it says produced from New Zealand and Imported product it has Chinese vegies in it, put it back on the shelf. I would even go as far as to say, even if it has product of New Zealand on it, I would be suspicious about where those vegies in that pack come from. I suppose to play it safe unless it has been grown and packed in Australia stay away from it unless you don’t mind digesting poisons.

Pretty scary stuff!!

Learn from BARCODES

This will cheer you up, hope you're not having chicken for dinner.  Please remember the Australian barcode prefix is 93

PLEASE NOTE - if you love Australian produce and the thought of keeping jobs here, AND you like to eat healthy foods and buy quality products, then please read on. Please also note the Australian barcode prefix is 93.

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, The 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 699 are all MADE IN CHINA. 471 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.

00 ~ 13 USA and CANADA
30 ~ 37 FRANCE
40 ~ 44 GERMANY
49 ~ JAPAN
50 ~ UK
57 ~ DENMARK
64 ~ FINLAND
76 ~ SWITZERLAND and LIECHTENSTEIN
93 ~ AUSTRALIA
628 ~ SAUDI ARABIA
629 ~ UNITED ARAB EMIRATESs
740-745 ~ CENTRAL AMERICAa
All 480 Codes are Made in THE PHILIPPINES..

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.

Send to as many people as possible. 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!

REMEMBER THE AUSTRALIAN BARCODE PREFIX????
IT IS 93

I am not from Australia, but this does interest me. Something similar has been posted before. Thank you for making it more clear. Some how I don't believe we can avoid made in China products, but I religiously search for the "Made in China" then put it back on the shelf. However, they seem to be making it harder to find it , and some products don't show it at all, so I put those back as well.

A great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in
March 2013. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had
spread to his lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. Ed hated the morphine which
made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on
ourselves.We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a
Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer
and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email :(phoenixtears44@gmail.com) to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram
of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of
life. We never saw an ocologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over
6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am
writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently. For
immediate assistance on every medical issue you and your family may be experiencing, contact Dr Rick via email: (phoenixtears44@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.
