Food for thought:
Those annoying fruit stickers can, apparently, be quiet informative:
- A 4-number code denotes conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables (pesticides used);
- A 5-number code beginning with 8 means, organic or not, the fruit or vegetable was genetically modified (GE or GMO);
- And a 5-number code beginning with 9 means the fruit was organically grown without genetic modification.
