The produce section is not exempt from labels. I used to just pick fruits and vegetables with not even a glance at the code on it. This was a very DANGEROUS mistake!!
Here's the 411 and why you NEED to know:
- If the number starts with 8, GREEN light! This is organically grown.
- If the number is 4 digits, YELLOW light! This is conventionally grown.
- If the number begins with 9, RED light! This item is Genenically Modified (GMO), that just sounds bad doesn't it! Put it back, and choose something else!.
