Food labels on produce

I wrote about this before. But I forgot what the 4-digit stickers on fruits and veggies meant, so I thought I’d remind us again:

4-digits = conventional harvesting (with pesticides)

5-digits beginning with 9 = organic origins

5-digits beginning with 8 = generically modified food (GM)
