    I just order some H4895 in 8lb jugs and was going to compare lot #'s between them and a 1lb bottle I have but I can't find a lot # on any of them. I saw a 5 or 6 digit # starting with a T near the bar code. On the 1lb bottle I have there's a much longer sequence of numbers that I assume is the lot # but can't find such on my 8lb jugs.

    It's usually a orange sticker on the side of jug, IMR does the same thing.

    Thanks, I did see the orange stickers on them and the though crossed my mind of that being the lot number but then I thought that the lot number would be important enough to be a more permanent fixture of the label and figured the orange sticker was an inspection designation or something.

    Thanks for clarifying. I'll copy that number over to the label with a sharpie cause I'm certain those stickers won't hang onto those jugs till they are empty.
