Search UPC Codes

SUMMARY: Search for information on a UPC code via Yahoo! Search to see other products made by the same manufacturer.

Curious who made a particular product you own? If it has a 12-digit UPC code, you can enter it into Yahoo! Search to see if it can link to a match. Note you must search using the full 12-digit code (the first and last numbers are normally smaller numbers to the left and right of the other ten digits).

The first result will be a UPC Database partner, currently http://www.upcdatabase.com/. If a result is found in the database you can see a description of the product. Sometimes the manufacturer name is hyperlinked; clicking this can show you other products made by the same company.
