Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines ,
Taiwan or China ? For your information … the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.

all bar codes that start with 690.691.692 until 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.


It is important to us. We have to avoid food products from China.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not trust products ‘made in china’, so they don’t show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the barcode.

Fuji apples from Yantai, Shandong, known for their glossy, crispy skin, are sold nationwide, and Qixia and Zhaoyuan, two dominant supplier cities of Shandong, have a total annual apple output of over one billion kilograms. But these beautiful and delicious-looking apple will do harm to your body, for these apples are grown in unmarked plastic bags containing a poisionous powder.

In March this year, the local government had seized more than 200 million bags and prohibitted the use of the bags. But a large number of bags are still produced and used in local apple farms.



A new food safety scandal has triggered public outcries in China.

A recent report revealed that Fuji apples from Yantai, Shangdong may be poisonous, because growers have been wrapping their apples up in plastic bags containing drug powders until they reach eating ripe stage.

Fuji apples from Yantai, known for their large and round appearance and sweet and crisp flesh, are sold nationwide.

Shangdong province’s Qixia and Zhaoyuan, as two main producing cities of this kind of apple, have a total annual output of over one billion kilograms sold to the market. However, a large amount of local apple growers in the areas have used these drug bags, in order to achieve better skin for their crops.


Regarding the drug powders used in the plastic bags, the bag producers and distributors have been kept them as industrial secrets. But local farmers and employees of the local Agricultural Cooperative Federation have admitted that “everyone knows they’re thiram and melarsoprol , prohibited to use.”


A farmer told the undercover reporter that the fruit is kept in the drug bags for more than five months until they ripen and enter the market. When applying the drug bags to apples, farmers have to wear masks and gloves, as the thiram and melarsoprol are dangerous and toxic.

These drug bags are produced in secret small workshops in towns. A machine operated by three persons can produce 150 thousand plastic bags a day. Each bag with the drug powders costs at five cents.

Besides, the plastic bags are marked with “apple bags only”. There is no word about medicinal drug and fungicide.

    Barcodes can reveil country of origin, but if you want to avoid products from many countries it is hard to remember all these codes. For me, best way is to research origin of product BEFORE I go shopping. There are now many websites with such informations. Some of them promote one country (all these “Buy American” etc.), others give you a global look on many products and countries (like But the most important thing is to be aware of this issue and to look for good and healthy products.
