Has anyone confirmed this is true? This article claims that:
For conventionally grown fruit, (grown with chemicals inputs), the PLU code on the sticker consists of four numbers. Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 9. Genetically engineered (GM) fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 8.
A conventionally grown banana would be: 4011
An organic banana would be: 94011
A genetically engineered (GE or GMO) banana would be: 84011
Generally, (and since I haven't had land for growing), I buy organic to avoid GMO food. I would LOVE if it were this simple for the rest of folks who might not buy organic.
