Barcode Problems - Jamie Oliver Pink Rock Salt

The lack of quiet zones on either side of this ITF14 barcode, have made it impossible to decode the data correctly.

GS1 Business comment:
Light margins so badly infringed that number cannot be successfully decoded.
Supposed to be an ITF14 but verifier sees as base Interleaved 2 of 5 symbology.
Light margin (or quiet zone) infringment is a major cause for barcodes either not scanning or even worse, mis-scanning.
