PLU Labels

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

You can tell whether the produce is organic or genetically modified by the PLU code (the number found on the sticker on the produce).  Conventionally grown produce has a 4-digit code, organic produce has a 5-digit code starting with a 9, and genetically modified produce has a 5-digit code starting with an 8.
