Give and Take - S11-E14

Factual error: During this episode, Sergent Klinger gives a Hershey Chocolate Bar with Almonds (although the 'Hershey' name is obliterated on the bulk box as well as the bar itself, there is no doubt as to what it is) to a wounded North Korean soldier, who accepts it and turns it upside down, revealing a Universal Product Code bar code. Bar codes were not used on products until some 20 years later. (00:12:20)
