Secret Grocery Codes



I just found out about this great little trick to use when grocery shopping to discern whether the produce you're buying is organic or genetically modified!

All you need to do is check out the little stickers on your fruit and vegetables. The number code will tell you what it is you're about to buy:
  • A four-digit number means it's conventionally grown.
  • A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it's organic.
  • A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it's genetically modified.
And that's it! How easy is that?

I will definitely remember to stay faaaar away from anything with five digits beginning with an 8, for this reason and many, many others. Yeesh!
