notice in https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/sdk/bar-code-scanner.html that the “code” is not passed as a param, it’s an object that has properties type and data

hi there

hard to diagnose as i can’t run that example. you might want to try simplifying that component, you’ll see that this works as expected here: https://snack.expo.io/@notbrent/qr-example

probably the navigation or itemUPC props aren’t available for some reason related to how you’ve structured your code outside of this component.
