How to decipher produce stickers
Sticker labels on fruits and veggies will have a 4 or 5 digit code.
If your produce has 4 digits, it means that it was conventionally grown, which includes the use of pesticides other agricultural chemicals.
If it has 5 digits, and begins with a 9, it means that the produce was organically grown. Organically grown food is by law produced without being sprayed with pesticides and is also GMO free.
A 5 digit code that begins with an 8 indicates that the produce was genetically modified. The safety of GMO foods is unproven and a growing body of research connects these foods with health concerns and environmental damage.
