Melamine Scare

With hundreds of babies hospitalized in China because of contaminated milks with melamine, how can we be sure the products we buy for our babies are safe?

Let me share this email i got from a friend..

The whole world is scared of China made "black hearted goods". Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ?

Let me tell you..... the first 3 digits of the barcode 690.691.692 is made in CHINA . Do not ever buy it for your own good. 471 is Made in Taiwan. This is our right to know, but the government and related department 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 won't show us which is made from which country. However, you may now refer to the barcode, if the first 3 digits is

690-692 then it is made in China
00~09 - USA & CANADA
30~37 - FRANCE
40~44 - GERMANY
49 - JAPAN
50 - UK

I do not know it its real, but a little double checking on the products we buy would not hurt. Prevention is bettern than cure!
