This is interesting info. I've always wondered about the bread thing. Makes me look forward to the next grocery day for a change.

thanks for the info pab.
i've been obsessed with looking at expiration dates on my food for a while (if you search, you can often find things with a coupla more days to expiration, ergo more fresh). i've noticed that bread tag color thing a while ago on english muffins and corn cakes.
i've always wondered about the numbers on produce. now i can obsess about one more thing...

Hi All,
So what does a Bar Code tell you?

As far as I know it's a means of keeping up with inventory and pricing. An item is entered into inventory with the purchasing price, retail price, and for wine with the varietal, maker, region, and vintage. Other items may have a "grown in" location, etc. The bar code is then scanned into the proper field. When you scan the bar code it reads the price and then reflects in the inventory...negatively for a sale and positively for a return.

Other than that I don't know that it does anything.
