Wrong barcode mattcarts — Jun 11, 2019 05:00AM PDT

How can you change a barcode to be linked with another product on the public database?

We have uploaded barcodes that are relevant to a product but have since changed?

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. For your scenario, what you will want to do is scan the new barcode in the MyFitnessPal app and then search for the item already in the database. This will update the barcode for that item, however, testing on my end it looks like scanning both the new and older barcode will return the same item in this case.

If you run in to an instance where you need to re use an old barcode for a different item, scan that barcode and when the item displays, scroll down to the bottom and tap Find a better match to pair it to a new item.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback.
