    There is a thread on here about Made in USA. For all your information you can tell if a product is made in the USA or other parts of the world by looking at the bar code on each product. As follows... the first three numbers are country made in

    690-692 China

    00-09 USA & Canada

    30-37 France

    40-44 Germany

    471 Taiwan

    49 Japan

    50 UK

    I do not know what our South of the boarder friends are. Bernie K

    A bar code is what ever you want it to be. There is only so much room on a bar code and their use is not universal. They are programmed to suit the needs of individual users. I see boxes that have so many bar codes on them, it's hard to decide which one to scan. Some manufactures change the codes as the product moves through production.

    I would like to see all products sold in the US, "CLEARLY" marked with the country of origin. I especially despise bolt and fastener manufacturers that print on their boxes.....This product may be made in or in a combination of the following countries......USA China Russia Japan India Poland Serbia Spain Peru Guam Haiti, etc,etc,etc......you get the idea.

    I have a package in my hand as I right this and printed clearly on the box it says "Made in USA" and the bar code is 382903234875. According to that country list the bar code I have. The product wasn't made on this planet.
