It was made in Jiagmen, China. China uses a different recycle coding system than ours.

See this page and skip down to China. Then look under the sticker label to see what code is imprinted on the plastic (I cannot actually see what code is imprinted in the picture and assume it is hidden by the label).

It says R2 which looks like is HDPE according to the chart.

I thought that, too, but since it doesn't show a universal Recycle symbol, I wasn't sure if that is what that actually means there and the Wikipedia article doesn't really say anything about an "R" in the code, so I would still have doubts.

Does the plastic look and feel like other HDPE containers with the Universal Recycle code symbol you usually see? I can't really tell from the photo.

I assume the R stands for recycling? The material absolutely looks and feels like other lye safe plastics I have used. I’ve been using them for over a year now and they still look perfect. No etching or damage of any kind is visible.
