The Produce Sticker Post

Many of us fondly (or not so fondly) recall learning to read labels on just about anything.  But have you gone grocery shopping recently only to wonder what the stickers on your apples meant?

Genetically Modified
Trying to avoid GMOs?  If the sticker has 5 numbers and starts with an 8?  It was genetically modified.

Grown Conventionally
Regular produce will have a sticker with 4 numbers on it.

These will have 5 numbers like the genetically modified but will start with a 9.
