i asked this question on another thread but later realized it was a sticky thread so maybe it wasn't seen. i am wondering if the orange sticker afixed to the bottom of my canister of h4227 which has an 11 digit number on the sticker would be the lot number.
i had thought the sticker was a store inventory number but could find no other numbers on the canister which appeared to be a lot number.

Give em a call they`ll even tell ya when it was produced !!

I called `bout a # of h-110 & they told me it was made in `88 & under good shelf conditions this powder should go 60 yrs !!

i thought it was the lot number. it was just not very secure for such an important bit of information. the imr people actually print the lot on the label, which seems smarter.
