The PLU “Price Look Up” code stickers on fruits and vegetables can help you identify organic, conventional and even genetically modified produce.
â€¢Â Organic produce stickers start with a 9 and have 5 numbers
â€¢ Conventional produce has 4 numbers
â€¢ GM (Genetically Modified) produce have 5 numbers like organic produce but start with the number 8 so be particularly cautious of those fruits and vegetables
Choose 9 for peace of mind!
