What does the jar of canned food hide?

All of us are consumers, and often we buy tinned products in banks. No matter, glass they, iron or polymeric. For the consumer the main thing that the product was qualitative. About handicraft canned food which the big set is on sale presently, I do not speak now. It is a separate subject. So, we will return to banks.

In a glass jar contents though can be considered if, of course, to try. In polymeric - it is vague. And the iron jar, whatever one may do, should be taken “blindly“. In this case the label helps out. With its help it is possible to define freshness of a product. Labels paste to banks or apply in the lithographic way on the case or a cover.

Note, information coded on a cover or a bottom banks is much more reliable, than a paper label which can come unstuck or be replaced.

There are several options of marking in a look bukvenno - a digital code. These signs with indelible paint on a cover of a metal tin are put or vyshtampovyvatsya (an expression method) and banks are the passport.

Certain number is assigned to each plant or manufacturer. He in combination with an alphabetic index allows to establish precisely the place of production of each can with canned food. On a cover assortment number is provided and date and change of production is specified.

So, two-row marking is applied to dairy products. This condensed milk, cream, skim milk with sugar and without sugar, etc. On banks with this canned food two rows are beaten out: for example, M2000 and 1250212.

It means: M - milk, 2000 - number of the enterprise, 125 - number of change, 0212 - date of production (to figure nine zero inclusive is ahead put).

Three-row marking is applied to canned, fish and vegetable meat.

Date of production is in the first row specified (31. 01. 12).

The second row indicates number of change (2000).

In the third row: type of canned food and number of the enterprise (R 100).

Note: the letter A - indicates canned meat, P - fish and seafood, To - fruit and vegetable, M - dairy.

Important . These designations are valid only for the Russian production and some former Soviet republics.

All foreign canning production is marked in a different way. On banks the realization deadline is specified, but banks and sometimes meet date of production. On foreign production there are no paper labels. All information on the can.

Attention, consumers!

If you saw on shelves of shops import canned food with paper labels or the can is blown up, deformed, and zakatochny seams rusted, you should not risk the health. We advise to refrain from purchase of this canned food.

If contents do not correspond to what is written on a label or bank, do not hesitate to bring a product back. Money can return to you. But if you at the same time also kept the check, then money is obliged to return to you.

If you buy banks with canned food not marked, so arrive irresponsibly in relation to yourself and the relatives. It is better to leave them to those who sells this canned food.
