How to avoid Chinese food products

Once you could avoid Chinese food products simply by looking for the country of origin printed somewhere on the packaging.  Regretfully, many businesses have gotten wise to this and only print the distribution source.  So what can be done? 

Reading barcodes can help.  Products made in China have barcode numbers that begin with 690 to 699.  The first three numbers for Taiwan are 471.   While products made in the United States begin with ZERO, many U.S. products are made with Chinese ingredients.  Regretfully, this means a ZERO does not assure that a product is without Chinese ingredients.
