A statement explaining how to decode a lot code (or unique tracking number applied to the product).  This number ensures traceability of each production run, and documents the date of production, the exact lot of the ingredients used within it and other important information.  This lot code is especially used for matching COAs (Certificates of Analysis) to understand the chemical test results for that product.  It is also used in the case of a food recall.
