The barcode scanner is not working in the iOS app.

The MyFitnessPal app requires permission from iOS to access your camera, in order to process a barcode scan.

If you tap the barcode feature and see only a black screen, you may be able to resolve this by giving the app permission to use the camera.

Launch the "Settings" app on your device, then tap "Privacy" then "Camera" and set MyFitnessPal to "on."
