Someone posted this on facebook today, does anyone know if it is accurate? I am always wary of stuff that gets re-posted around facebook, but this would be really helpful if true:

How to read Bar Codes....interesting !
If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691 or 692, theproduct is MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan . If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 00-09 then it's made or sourced in USA. This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, some countries do not take the care in making things that others do, so knowing where a product is made can help in your decision on which one you want to choose. SO you may now refer to the barcode remember if the first 3 digits are:
890......MADE IN INDIA
690, 691, 692 ... then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 - 09 ... USA and CANADA
30 - 37 ... FRANCE
40 - 44 ... GERMANY
471 ........ Taiwan
49 .......... JAPAN
50 .......... UK
