It's a matter of cost - printing a bar code on every product costs next to nothing, RFID devices are a lot more expensive, even in bulk. And don't forget that they would have to be implanted in the packaging for everything: even a 33p sweetie would need it's own chip. Until the price drops to less than 1p each, you won't see them embedded in all consumer units. Some UK traded units do (or did - I'm a little out of touch with the industry these days) have RFID tags - notably the re-usable fresh produce trays in supermarkets because the cost can be amortised over the life of the tray, rather than each product.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
